Full sail, single reefed, double reefed, mizzen and jib was the progression on a beautiful blustery day on the backside of a cool front that rolled through last evening.
The oldest daughter was along for the ride, the first of the two daughters to get in town for the crab boil. Taylor helped build and was part of the original crew of Spartina, sailing in her early high school years along with her sister and I when we talked on the water about classes and books and what the future might hold.
Lunch at at the Pagoda for a pleasant lunch, then headed in early as there is a lot to do for the evening meal.
Walking back to Spartina I am sometimes surprised she is mine.
