I was skimming through some of my GoPro videos from our vacation last summer at Camp Arcadia on Lake Michigan, and I took a quick screenshot of T2 drifting along in the Minifish on a very calm day out on Lake Michigan.
it was an awesome day – sailing with my boys, but with them sailing solo in the Minifish while I was alone or with one of them in the Sunfish. after a bit, the boys switched places, and Noah got his turn drifting along in the Minifish.
not the greatest amount of wind, but still a beautiful day to mess about on the Great Lakes.
wooden jetty on Lake Michigan
The Lord is my pilot, I shall not drift.
He guides me across the dark waters.
He steers me through deep channels.
He keeps my log.
Yea, though I sail ‘mid the thunders
and tempest of life,
I shall dread no anger, for He is with me;
His love and His care, shelter me.
He prepares a quiet harbor before me.
He anoints the waves with oil
My ship rides calmly.
Surely sunlight and starlight
shall guide me on the voyage I take,
And I will rest in the heaven’s port forever.

hard to believe that I almost drowned the last time I was at this pier. it was very different lake conditions then, nothing like the flat calm water on this day in the late summer of 2014.
Curtains fall, fashions fade, an endless summer over
Another tide to launch an autumn moon over the dunes
