|Haven't been up to catch the sunrise in awhile|
That afternoon, we took our Portland Pudgy, Skadoosh, to shore for a day at the beach. It is the first time I have been in the water this summer. Dave has dove the hull, but not just relaxed like this. The water was cold, but we enjoyed it. We had perfect wind to sail directly back to the boat. Dave let me off at the stern. Then he had to go around our other dinghy and along side the boat to take the sail off and load it back on the bow. When he rounded to the side of the boat, the nose of Skadoosh was directly into the wind, and he couldn’t sail along side the boat. It took him about 30 minutes to zigzag across the bay and get back to our boat.
