TWO WEEKS IN A ROW March 21, 2011

That’s right we got out two weekends in a row. It was a little warmer, both day and night. Plus the largest full moon in a couple decades. We ended up at Red Fish Pt as usual. The wind on Saturday was from the south and changed to the west about time to anchor. That was good timing since we were going west.

Sunday started clear and calm. Then as the wind started to fill from the south, the sea fog rolled in. I had put the dingy in and sailed around till about noon. The wind was starting to fill in from the SW, so it was time to start home. It blew about 10 kts about half way, then started to drop to about 5 kts. It continued to shift west till we were sailing dead down wind. Down below 2 knots of boat speed and it was time to start the engine. That also was good timing because we were about 1/8 mile from the entrance to the canal. Can’t bet that.

The mate was not happy with the picture of her last week. Therefore we have a new posed picture and one of me. And I had to sneak in another nap picture. It was after 3 pm, weekend nap time.
