After months of the annual getting ready we are back on the bay again. We started with a college reunion afternoon sail captured above. Not much breeze but lots of conversations after fifty years. One could say that the hot air from so many recollections was enough to keep the vessel moving, that and the new John Deere down below.

The lobsters are as excellent as ever, the crew is working and playing hard with only the determination that sailors know, and the shipmates are as always engaging, interesting, and good company.
