today’s tunes: nineteen hundred and eighty five

a sailor on the Sunfish Forum was looking for help determining the age of his Minifish, and posted this hull ID number. 


the last 2 digits indicate the year the boat was built: 1985. 

makes me think of this groovy number by Sir Paul, himself no stranger to the Sunfish sailboat!

today’s tunes: a hand to take hold of the scene

I learned about this band Okkervil River from the old independent radio station WOXY out of Cincinnati.  as is often the case, I prefer the live, and in this case acoustic, version of this song to the original album version.

 When we’re so far from right,
When we’re losing the fight,
When we are letting the light weaken its beam
Oh, oh, Is there a hand to take hold of the scene?

I am not afraid of storms

Van Gogh: The Stevedores in Arles

GOGH, Vincent van Los descargadores en Arles, 1888_557 (1965.7)

The heart of man is very much like the sea, it has its storms, it has its tides and in its depths it has its pearls too ~ Vincent van Gogh

my 1st sunfish (a newer picture)

Camp Arcadia is a family tradition with us, but my wife and I have made it an “every other year” tradition.  some of my other family members still go up every year.  it’s a charming and beautiful place, nestled in a quiet town in norther Michigan, and just an amazing beautiful setting right on the shores of Lake Michigan.

this year was an off year for us, as we took the trip to Cancun with some college friends (and sailed the Hobie) –  but my sister took her family and my parents went this year as well.

this afternoon, within minutes of each other, my dad and sister both texted me the same photo, with a text like “is this you?” or “wish you were here!”

it’s funny how things work.  I recognize the Sunfish by that particular sail color/pattern – that happens to be the 1st Sunfish that I ever sailed on, now almost 20 years ago.

I’ve posted about this 1st Sunfish before: my 1st ever sail on a Sunfish, another picture here, and my 1st post ever here!

it was the start of it all.
