From the Dock of the Bay

On the dock looking East toward Bay Head

I hope the centerboard is up somewhat
because it's not too deep right there....

Dad and a couple of his Metedeconk friends
streaking by the end of our dock

I can't imagine the Lightning not having hiking 
straps, but it looks like Dad has his right foot
hooked underneath the aft deck coaming

Lightnings are not necessarily known for blinding
speed, but 'Vision' looks to be nearly sailing on
her skeg alone.  Blazing

Mom letting out an exhilarated laugh, probably
relieved that the mast didn't snap.  From the looks
of it, everyone had a good time that afternoon.

This blog has been very quiet in the past few months.
Sometimes it seems that I've run out of relevant topics
or that what I feel like posting about won't interest my
two followers.  There's always food, but 829 was 
supposed to be more than that.  Unfortunately, 
Facebook makes it too easy to post on a whim,
and I fear I have fallen prey to that medium.
I'm not knocking FB though, for I've been able
to re-connect with cousins who for so long
seemed unreachable.  I'm thankful for this.

The above post represents some of what I had
originally set out to do.  There are still some random
photos that need to be scanned and talked about, 
things that I've done and places we've visited, and
I look forward to getting back to that.  There's still
a lot more sentimental mush left in me.
