What I learned last weekend....

Last weekend I learned that you can't sail if there isn't any wind!

I spent some time last weekend on John's sailboat, the Leander. Unfortunately, there wasn't much wind so we spent more time in the harbor than out on Lake Michigan. But all was not lost, the cockpit of the sailboat was a great place to sit and stitch in the fresh air!


We were kept busy with various chores on the boat and the dock, we socialized with all of the other boat owners on the dock at the annual dock party. I tried a new recipe that Cindy mentioned on her blog for Tomato Pie. It was a hit! We also got to see Julia & Julie, and really enjoyed the movie!



On Monday afternoon we did get out of the harbor and onto the lake. It was a beautiful, sunny day after a morning of heavy fog.

Sounds like a good time was had by all. I rememer marvelling at The Great Lakes while on a flight from NYC to Milwaukee ... they are really great inland seas ...most of the flight was over water. The experience completely reamped all the tidy little notions I had picked up from maps studied in elementary school geography class!!!
