The graceful dance of a sailor at the end of a journey can be quite a performance as he drops the jib and then the mainsail, guiding a sloop into harbor.
On a warm breezy evening on Drayton Passage, it is quite the show.
From my deck on a lazy summer day: It is the only show.
But what a way to start our Longbranch staycation.
My Lovely Bride and I are on holiday for the next two weeks, as we are apt to do each August. We have adhered to this summer tradition for as long we have lived on the Key Peninsula.
We used to plan trips out-of-state. Get on a plane, boat or the car and head somewhere else.
“This is the life,” said my Lovely Bride, sitting next to me with a sweating pint-glass of Guinness in hand and the growing shadows of early evening mottled on the the deck. “I am on vacation.”
Yes you are my love.
Good morning Longbranch.
