Our friends Mindy and John invited us to sail on "Striker" yesterday. I took motion meds.... then I took a nap when we got back and slept all NIGHT!
Trace must have been steering because it looks like we weren't. We had a swell time and there were many swells also. Time to remember how to tack. "Sunny Ray" has a self-tacking jib. Striker is a racing boat. Dolphins greeted us inside the jetties on the way back.
Mindy's granddaughter Gabby is a good friend of Dale's. They really enjoy each other.
Ray gets up his first try!
Dale is ready to go again!
Gabby's Dad, Phillip, has graciously brought a board and is helping the kids get started.

So today (after my all evening/night nap!), another pressurized water leak was discovered. Dan fixed it up as well as installed a volt meter for our motor batteries, installed a foot pump for water and more, and made ME breakfast and dinner! All I did was laundry and unloaded most of the stuff from our cockpit. You can dance in it now! They don't call me Lounge Jean for nothing.
The kids had so much fun at the beach. I really love these pictures....
The birds are coming, the birds are coming!
Hope you are also working and playing AND NAPPING as hard as you can!
