Conan, JoAnn and I (Melitta) went on a morning trip to the harbor yesterday.
It was a gorgeous sunny day with blue sky and small cumulus clouds stacked up. The wind was up on the harbor after a flat and calm river. We started off with one reef and the Lynx was loving it. Later the wind dropped a bit and we took the reef out.
It was a short morning trip so we only went out to Castle Island and stopped by to say hi to Matt Wall on our way back. Matt was out on Nevermore working on a repair.There were quite a few people out sailing, tons of kayakers and I'm pretty sure we saw every duck boat while on our way back up the river. So many were out enjoying the river and the day.
JoAnn got some great pictures of planes landing at Logan. It was bittersweet to realize that we were out on the harbor sailing under the flight path from Logan on September 11, 2010. It was a day, time and activity that all
three of us felt lucky about. Check out a few more
Hope we get out a few more times this season! The fall is a great time to sail.
