Our Maiden Voyage into Howe Sound

“Did you ever think that you, a prairie girl, would be sailing her own boat on the ocean,” wrote my childhood best friend on my facebook album.

Not in a million years. But then again, I haven’t lived on the prairies for over twenty years … And I’ve been next to the sea nearly as long as I lived with a horizon that went on forever and wind that went on longer than that.

This summer we became sailors. Okay, still becoming … but it has been wonderful, whether it has been simply sailing around the bay, tied up at Snug Cove, or anchored at Gambier Island.

Dinghys are for kids who won’t behave… set adrift in 0 knots of wind … they didn’t get far.

Happy weekend sailor.

Scuba Finn.

Keeping watch out front.

My handsome sailor!
