Had a great time just sailing around with Ian and Gwen who I met at the sailing club social in July. Saw several porpoises. Got some good video footage for YouTube too! For a while we had all three sails up and were looking pretty bad-ass. Ian and Gwen are cool peeps and I look forward to sailing with them again.
On the way back, there was this other boat just hanging out around the entrance to the channel. He hailed me on the radio! I’d never been hailed before, it was pretty exciting. He was not familiar with the area, and was concerned about the shallowness of the water in the channel. Turns out we were both going to the same marina so I told him to follow me in. While we were docking, he passed by and yelled out “Meet us at D6 for drinks!”
So after we got the boat docked and tidied up, the three of us went over… It was the guy on the radio, his wife, and her girlfriend. We all sat around talking and having snacks, it was really fun! They had some avocado drenched in lime juice, OMG yum. By the time I got home it was almost 9 and I was totally pooped from the full day.
It felt really good to finally sail again after so much work. You know what they say about all work and no play!
