Sailors Braver than we are

Today, we had hours of pouring rain and just after noon, the clouds cleared and the sun came out … the wind was still pretty brisk but after weeks of icky weather, a Sunday with some sunshine was just too appealing for the brave sailors.

We watched them passing back and forth as we had lunch by the shore. These are 35-knot-plus winds folks.

Some sailing glory for you to enjoy.

Look at this one heel!

Next, we hung up decorations for Valentines’s day. February is the month we got married, and so these stay up until after our anniversary every year.
