Hopeful in Longbranch that the Seahawks find fair winds in the future

A schooner glides quietly down Drayton Passage with only its aft mast sail up Sunday. This old boat picked a good afternoon to transit south with 6-mile-per-hour winds from the west pushing it.

A waning moon in the eastern sky over Longbranch early morning Friday. Our beautiful sunrises will be a distant memory as we wade into wetter conditions most of this week.

Fair winds and following seas blessed sailors transiting down Drayton Passage yesterday.

“What a beautiful day,” my Lovely Bride said. “I didn’t expect this at all.”

After Saturday’s deluge, it was a welcome respite from a stormy day.

Cleaning up around the yard was the first order of business in our homestead, while a delicious sun kissed my neck.

Then, it was time for a little pigskin action. Bengals 27, Seahawks 24 in overtime.

Not the result we wanted.

I have not heard such salty verbiage from my Lovely Bride in ages.

“Why is Wilson playing so poorly?” she screams.

Well, it’s more complicated that my dear.

“Then how come they’re just letting them score?”

I did agree with her on that point. It was a dismaying display by the visiting team, even if the Baby Beast (Thomas Rawls) flashed a snapshot of the future.

Here’s hoping to see that effort again next Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.

Hope firmly ensconced in my heart, I leave you with an Irish toast:

“May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face”

Good morning Longbranch.
