A friend of ours asked us to go sailing on Saturday. He had just finished restoring the sailboat that he grew up with and has had it in the water a few months now. As luck had it, my husband had the day off so we all met at the marina. I grew up around sailboats, but I have not been sailing since the mid-80’s when my mom, step-dad, 2 step-sisters and I went sailing for a week on Lake Michigan. The weather was sunny, warm and really quite perfect… except we had a hard time finding any decent wind. It was still a great day.
My mom will laugh when she sees this post because we just finished looking at piles of slides, many of which were from 1960’s and 70’s when my mom and dad did a lot of sailing and racing. Slide after slide of sailboats and sailboats. We both commented that it has been years since we were on a sailboat… and here I was, just a few weeks later, on a sailboat.
Have you been sailing lately?
