Family = Awesome

Work has been a bit tough for me lately, but once again I was lifted by my family. Tonight, in the midst of my emotional (yes, crying) rant to Frank, my little boy of only 4 years paused his video game, came over to me and gave me a big hug. Awesome. And yes, that made me cry even more. I am so lucky. That was followed by an all-in hug-sandwich from all 3 of my loves. They like me and are proud of me and damn it, that's all that matters! :)

To Cambridge

The Captain had a great plan for the weekend! We headed to Cambridge in some serious (15-20kt) winds and ended up smack in the middle of a huge race to Oxford! We made great time and made an attempt at the city wall, but quickly realized the only spot available was right where we'd run aground the last time we were there. The crew of "Echo" even verified with a handheld fatho from their dinghy for us--6ft. Time to anchor!

Cambridge's End of Summer Fest was full of great food and decent music, and the weather was just perfect! All in all, it was a fun visit and a very peaceful night on the hook.

We met light airs this morning, but managed to sail for a little bit. Katreina even drove some more! She's really getting into it.

Boo, time to go back to work.
