Just a couple of great days on the water this past weekend. Monday in Norfolk on the Elizabeth River, very basic video below but you'll get the feeling that it was light steady winds, sunny and warm. I'll take it. (You will notice I keep busy looking around, a good survival strategy when sharing the water with tugboats, barges as big as buildings, freighters and the occasional warship or nuclear powered submarine.)
Monday it was sailing on the Paquotank River out of Elizabeth City, NC, (photos at the top and bottom) where I ran into my sailing friends Claughton and Scoot. Claughton lives in a civil war era house on Forbes Bay, having me there as a guest there a couple of years ago for probably one of my all time favorite family reunions (even though it wasn't my family).
Claughton and Scoot were sailing Claughton's knew-to-him Sparkman and Stephens designed 22' sailboat. Scoot was nice enough to send the photo of Spartina, above. We sailed alongside of each other for a long while, enjoying the nice weather and breeze, talking about sailing and boats and how good life was that afternoon.
Just a great weekend on the water.
