We sailed out of Rockland Harbor, toward Rockport.
As the breeze was light, we didn’t get too far, but we were moving the whole time, and it was beautiful. We saw several different ducks and loons, as well as a sturgeon leap out of the water along side the boat. Just gorgeous!
A and L were teasing me for all the layers – tights, long johns,jeans, 2 pairs of sox, turtleneck, sweater, insulated jacket, gloves and a wool hat (a new hand knit one, of course.) However – ! When we were out on the bay, I was cozy and warm, and they looked a little chilly. The others on the boat seemed chilly too – just in fleece. Fleece is lovely, but it doesn’t keep the wind out. Of course, Captain Bob was barefoot for the whole cruise, so maybe it was just me who needed layers!
Anyway, the day was really glorious, and we had a fun sail, cold weather not withstanding. At least it was clear and a bit windy – better than the last two tries. And just in time, Bob said he is hauling the boat next week.
