On Days Like These


It's on days like these that I do miss sailing particulary the old dinghy we had. Yes it was a beast to lug on and off the trailer. Yes I did have to stand in the water up to my waist to launch her but oh the joy of being powered by the wind and fighting the tide. We knew if she capsized we could never right her as she was old patched and heavy but she never let us down.
We took her down to the Tamar and out into Plymouth Sound beached her for lunch and had a hairy sail back up the Tamar. We took her up to the Lake District camping and sailing. We spent endless days around the three rivers that run into Carmarthen Bay.
Yes great heart stopping moments full of joy.

Link yes its obvious
