SAILING
« on: November 23, 2015, 04:32:07 PM »


I took Beth to see an old buddy of mine that I've known since 7th grade.  We all went out on his sailboat which has a slip in Long Beach, right by the Queen Mary.  I haven't been sailing in 25 years or more, but it's a lot like riding a bicycle in as much as you don't forget much!

I do a pretty good seal impression, and so the fellas and I were chatting back and forth.

Beth and I both needed this day.  It was fun, and we've both been under the gun as of late!

Looks like a great day!  Last Friday, I had my boat pulled out of the water.  It has been wet for 7 years.  Time for fresh bottom paint in the spring before going back in the water.

I had to meet the boatyard guys at the ramp at 11am on Friday.  About a 1 or 2 mile slog across the lake.  It was 39 degrees when I left the slip.  Wind blowing 20 knots.  It was brisk!  I got to the ramp before the hauling crew, and watched a family(2 adults and young one) of eagles fish. 

Got some pics, but can't upload right now.

It was 88 in Long Beach, where the ghetto meets the sea!
