MORE BUSY April 13, 2009

Working, varnish work and Easter company. So much to do so little time. Oh and did I mention the HAM test. My son and his beautiful wife came for the weekend. They got here about 4 PM Friday. We spent Saturday sailing, It started with a good breeze out of the north on a cloudless day. About noon, just like two weeks ago, the wind died as it was overcome by the sea breeze. That finally filled in from the SW and we continued to sail to the pass. My son was very desirous at sailing out in the Gulf. I was a little reluctant, knowing his wife is really a land person and we have gotten her very uncomfortable before. She did not say anything, so with a strong out flowing tide, we went out into 3-4 foot seas. We went about 5 miles out to where the water got clear. We have had a lot of rain lately and the bay is a dirty brown from the rivers that drain into the bay.

She was a real trooper, I could tell she was chocking back to keep from throwing up. The only thing she said was to her husband acknowledging that this trip into the Gulf was his idea. I think he got his, he came down with a cold Saturday night and did not look very well at sunrise services.

My son spent most of the day figuring out how the radar works. It is always nice to spend time with family.
