Been a long time.

Taking Nirvana out for the first time.

It’s been thirteen days since my last post here.  So, this has been my longest break in posting since I started this photoblog over 2 years ago.  I’d better catch you all up.

The week before last was busy with work.  Monte was working on a project in the woodshop.  I had to travel to Raleigh for all of last week.  A very long week, indeed.  I brought my camera with me, but given my work schedule and meetings every day starting early and ending late, the only interesting subject matter to capture ended up being TV screen shots from the Olympics (especially the women’s gymnastics team gold).  I decided to spare you and skip posting those.

While I was in Raleigh last week, Monte closed on the boat.  I got home close to midnight Friday night, so Saturday morning I was anxious to get out to the marina.

We moved in Saturday afternoon and slept on the boat for the first time Saturday night.  On Sunday morning we took Nirvana out for the first time together.   The winds were very light to non-existent, but we had a blast.   We raised both sails and ghosted along for a while.  Getting Nirvana was a big step for us, but I am very excited about this next phase of our sailing-life journey together.   This is a shot that monte took of Nirvana from the water.

At the end of the day we stopped by b-dock for a float.  By the time we got home tonight we were both pretty exhausted but somehow found the energy to split up cooking duties to make lamb chops (monte) and risotto (me) for a delicious dinner.

G’nite all!

  1. Envy, envy, envy. Haven’t sailed since moving from San Diego and really want to get to a place where we can take it up again. That’s a nice model – many wishes of great days with wind from your desired direction!
