Here are the pics I promised earlier in another thread. These were taken on 10/6 when GW and I cruised up to a waterfront restaurant for a libation and some oysters and calamari. It turned out to be a beautiful day....70*, zero wind, just a few other boats out there. Darn near perfect.
Here's GW at the helm so I can take these photos. She used to hate to drive because she felt overwhelmed by the whole thing. Now she loves it.
Here we're heading upriver from our marina. That's "Sleep H", an Ocean Alexander from CIYC, coming out behind us.
Here's the obligatory wake shot. At this point we're just above hull speed, running about 9.8 kts.
Ya gotta love these nice, warm days when the sun's out nice and bright and there's no wind. Love it.
A shot along the port side. The fenders are out in preparation for our docking at the restaurant.
This was on the way back. We're coming to one of the few other boats out there that day.
One of the greatest things about where we live is that we get to boat all year, and we have these great days in October and November when we can boat in shorts on calm waters with few other boats out there. I've been here almost 37 years and it would take a LOT to get me to leave our area.
