Stormy Summer Weather

On a July Sunday (yesterday) when temps on the lake are always triple in digits, we froze our butts off sailing.  It was definitely jacket and glove weather.

There was just enough wind to fill the sails and heel the boat slightly.  Even though there's a serious look here, the boat's sound system was cranked with yours truly jumping and jiving to the music.  Too bad yet another Kodak moment in Bob's life went unrecorded.

Yes, the sweatshirt is inside out.  I've always thought the inside looked better than the outside on each and every sweatshirt I've owned.

Wifey with jacket and gloves out of the wind immersed in the last chapter of a 1,300 page novel.  In between pages Wifey adjusted the jib.  She loves to multi-task.

Wifey snapped a few photos of Sparkle Plenty's interior.  In particular, changes made over the winter.  Carpet was replaced with teak flooring.

A crusty sink was replaced with a new shiny one.

Space once dedicated for holding a large Igloo cooler was made into basket storage.  A much better use of space.

Four hours of sailing yielded lots of smiling.  Isn't that what life is all about?

This has been a weird summer, weather wise. Temps down here have been very mild.
Very handsome pic of you enjoying life. I too like the inside out look but usually don't do it. hmm. I'll live vicariously through you.
The floors in the boat look very nice, very slick.
What do you keep in those baskets?
I know what I'd keep in them. Toys.:)

That´s quite a novel! And I love that floor.

Did you know I lived on a sailing yacht for 7 months once? With my parents, I was in my early 20s. (Yes, we are all still alive.)
