sailing away...

sail boat with lens flarenothing quite like being on the water on a beautiful day in early summer. saturday was incomparable. the only thing lacking was more wind in the early afternoon, but as the sun began its descent, the wind picked up a bit. mum spent the early afternoon kayaking, then we all went out on a friend's boat in the evening.

i don't know how people survive without being able to get out on the water frequently. there's nothing quite like the freedom and serenity of either paddling around a gorgeous lake or hoisting the sails and letting the wind carry you where it will. i have to say that my goal of owning my own sail boat has only increased in the past couple years... now all i need is to find the money. donations?

right, the rest of the holiday weekend was spent sleeping, reading, and cooking. not a real exciting weekend, but the full day of sailing on saturday certainly made it worth it. next weekend i hope to be doing it again at a regatta on the coast. life is good even though work is terribly dull.

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.
