Great first day

The first day of the sailing course was good. It covered much of what I already knew, but that's to be expected when you're going over material with a new group of people. The other people in the course are a couple from Knoxville, TN. They are pleasant and have a great sense of humor which makes everything go much better.

I was out on the water for six hours yesterday and was beat. We did a lot of tacking and jibing, got chased around by some thunderstorms, and generally had a great time.

Life is good at the moment. I'm tired but looking forward to another day on the water. I hope that each of you is having a good week. Needless to say, I am missing reading your blogs. I get a lot from what you have to say.

I'm grateful today for:
  • an opportunity to do something that I enjoy and am passionate about
  • staying in the moment when I'm out on the boat
  • coming home to a soft bed and lots of kisses
  • having a job that allows me to take leave to do some exciting stuff


  1. Isn't it great when you're tired from doing something you love to do?

    I haven't made the time to get out on the water in my kayak and you are inspiring me.....

  2. It sounds wonderful and gives me an idea - that perhaps I should be looking at classes to take as well.

  3. wow such a good time... I want to go play on and in the water :)

  4. Glad you are having such a great time learning. That is always great.

  5. sun, sea, surf, fresh air.... nah, skip the blogs for now and enjoy!

  6. i'm so jealous! u have fun out there :)


Let me know what you think. I like reading what you have to say.
