Pretty boat.

Over the weekend, we took out Nirvana and Cupholder at the same time.  Monte wanted to get some photos of the catboat underway.  Kurt came along to steer while I stood on the bow and took photos.  The light was lovely, with a slight northerly breeze.

Taking 4 years to build, starting in 2000;  launched in Lake Travis in 2004; heavily sailed and thoroughly enjoyed for years; hauled out in 2012; driven to the coast for its saltwater christening and to sail the weeklong Texas 200 in 2013; lovingly restored over the course of a few more years; relaunched on Lake Travis in 2019.  Monte has taken great pains over the years to keep her looking and sailing like new.  A pretty boat, indeed.  Also, still the best dancefloor on Lake Travis.  🙂

Wind, sun and sky

Though another scorcher in Austin today, being out on the lake made it enjoyable.

The restaurant at the marina had its grand opening today, and we did our part to check our the menu and drinks.

Our 12 year old great-niece Amanda lost her fight tonight against aplastic anaemia and the side effects of 2 marrow transplants.   Praying for peace and blessings to her parents, grandparents, sister and brother.

Heaven has another angel.
