The sailing season, along with summer, is slowing trickling away and morphing into fall. Much to my dismay.
But fall is off to a nice start. A few last sailing sessions. A new house. Another teaching certificate, finally. Fresh apples. New reading glasses. Maybe even some pumpkin patching and hay rides? That would make my day.
It's late. Plus, it's only Tuesday and I'm already exhausted enough for Friday. So, I'll give you some of my favorite photos from our last sailing outing on Out of the Blue.
She's a good boat. Twenty four feet long and she sails fast. John, Tyler and TC had a blast getting her going in the wind.
Pay attention to the angle of the boat versus the horizon. That's how you can tell how fast we're going.
It's also worth mentioning that I've really been enjoying my new lens (16-35mm L f/2.8). It's making photography more fun than I ever thought possible.
Enjoy the tour of our final sail for the year!
