Happy Again

We're back on the water at last. Sunday's winds were more than forecast and just right for us and lots of other people. Hinuma Harbor has sprung back to life after a long slumber.

Thanks for the pic, Y-san!


A gaggle of Lasers/SeaHoppers practiced racing for the Japan Nationals, Y-san was out on his Com-Pac "Picnic" cat boat, even the 17 foot daysailer "Mark II" was sailing after a long hiatus. I-san, who plucked me out of the water and on to his SeaHopper a few years ago after we capsized, was there too, but not sailing. He was sharing the sight of SeaHoppers racing with his 8 month old baby boy - the proud father expressed his hopes for his sailor-to-be.

Y-san and his Com-Pac




After sailing we stopped by Mama's Kitchen. After salad, I had a sandwich and fruit - saved half for dinner - and K had curried chicken and a freshly made dessert.

Happy again...




We're gonna be alright now....

Until next, sweet sailing.

A good steady breeze, a freshly cleaned bottom, warm water, good photography, great crew and a meal waiting! What more can one hope for in a day? Every day one sails a (no matter how briefly), lengthens one's life by two.
