No sailing at dawn, a morning that came thick with humidity and thin with wind. I ran down to the waterfront anyway for a boat check, SPARTINA floating comfortably at the dock, clean and dry under her boom tent.
I grabbed a glass of iced-tea at the breakfast spot around the corner, carried it back to the marina where I sat up in the shade on the second floor enjoying the last bit of the morning's coolness.
I added the newest piece of gear to the boat, a luminescent waterproof flashlight made by Pelican. Easier to find in the dark, and a good deal at less than $30.00.
Summer solstice tomorrow, dawn at 5:46. Wouldn't it be nice to raise sail as the sun comes up?
