a la-z-boy on the water

The forecast was, thankfully, wrong today.  Overcast and 2 mph wind.  I decided to give it a try anyway.

Got down to the waterfront just as the morning fog was clearing.  I made sure I can clearly see up and down the shipping channel before motoring out on to the river.  In Craford Bay I raised sail and was pleasantly surprised by a steady breeze.

And the day just got better and better.  Clear, brilliant blue skies and a solid little breeze that swung from northwest to west by the afternoon.  It was just a wonderful day.

 Mid-afternoon I sailed by another small boat with a man and three women on board.  One of the women said "When I see you out here you never seem to be sailing.  You just recline in your boat and relax."  Yes, SPARTINA in my living room recliner, only on the water.

Was truly a beautiful day today in the East. But NO WIND over here in Piedmont Carolina. I had to just enjoy the sunshine and everyone dancing in the streets to the election good news. Hopefully some wind on Tuesday around here.
