friday on the water
This morning we packed up and headed into the town of Mahone Bay for a beautiful sail. First stop was a deli for sandwiches, then to the dock for a launch ride out to the Belle Canto, Pat and Jon's Pearson 42 boat. Weather clear and bright, water calm, winds light. We motored for awhile, then put up the sails,
first the jib, then the mainsail. We had a lovely run down the bay. There are many islands along the way, some inhabited, some not. Lots of boats out enjoying the day. Perfectly restful.
Patty was the pilot, Jon the navigator. Even Mr. C, who has come late in life to the enjoyment of sailing, was very content to find himself at sea (so to speak!).
Tonight we are going out to dinner at a place just down the street, Magnolia's, famous for scallops. Report tomorrow.
