big boat sailing: Altair [video]

some of these big boats are so beautiful and graceful as they glide across the water.

the ebb and flow of life

it has been different this year.

my weekends were usually pretty filled up with working on finishing our barn. it’s not done yet, but it has come along nicely, and is getting closer. we are having the house plans drawn up now, so maybe the house will be next summer?

early July brought along another distraction. Mrs My2Fish and I were blessed with our 4th boy.

4 boys!

so I didn’t get to sail very much. almost not at all, really. just two afternoons on Lake Michigan.

but, those were pretty special days: I got to sail for the first time with my 2 older boys sailing on their own, in their own sailboat – a Minifish. sailing alongside me, instead of just riding along with dad on the Sunfish.

both of them took the 2 week sailing classes again thus summer, and they really enjoyed it. my oldest son even sailed a Laser (and loved it, *gasp*).

so did I sail much this year? hardly. but it hasn’t been a lost year.

it was a year that brought new life.

new beginnings.

new adventures.
