Boat Show 2012

Well, another boat show is over! This year, the Captain got to go "solo" on Friday to research his list, then he, "swab," and I went back today to make some purchases! A dinghy, a 9.8hp outboard, a winch, lunch, and 3 Painkillers and we called it a day! Swab took a power nap on the way home and the little girl just hooked me up with a leg/foot massage. I think we are all happy!

Wye not?

The weather almost made this a tale of two weekends--high near 80 on Saturday, high barely 50 on Sunday. But the winds were favorable for a trip to the Wye River so we set sail! We thoroughly enjoyed the warm, steady sailing Saturday and anchored in Dividing Creek off the Wye River with about a half dozen other boats. The front started to move through as we anchored, but that didn't stop us from taking a nice dinghy ride to explore the nearby pubic lands. When we returned I even got adventurous and asked to be hoisted aloft so I could put up the last of our Halloween decorations. Of course the wind kicked up, but it's done!

While it was cooler, almost PacNorWest-like, this morning we had another nice day of sailing back home. I guess fall is officially here!
