neither out far nor in deep

a poem by Robert Frost

The people along the sand
All turn and look one way.
They turn their back on the land.
They look at the sea all day.

As long as it takes to pass
A ship keeps raising its hull;
The wetter ground like glass
Reflects a standing gull.

The land may vary more;
But wherever the truth may be—
The water comes ashore,
And the people look at the sea.

They cannot look out far.
They cannot look in deep.
But when was that ever a bar
To any watch they keep?

it ain’t no spring chicken

it has been a busy spring and early summer, but alas no sailing (yet).  we’ve moved into the new house (not totally unpacked and settled yet), and the old house has sold, pending the usual inspection/appraisal/closing stuff.  moving out into the country has given us an opportunity to see a lot more wildlife up close and personal – this guy came strolling up the driveway yesterday afternoon.  might just make for a nice Thanksgiving dinner in a few months!

JD summer clearance sale

I’m a big fan of Jamestown Distributors, and have been on their email list for quite some time.  today’s email had a nice little photo surprise – an old wooden Sunfish!

JD wooden sunfish

for Sunfish sailors, Jamestown Distributors is an excellent source for epoxy & fiberglass supplies for when it comes time to make repairs to your Sunfish hull.  they supply West System epoxy  & all the various fillers, and they have recently started their own line of boat repair products, the “Total Boat” line.  I also used JD to purchase supplies for when I did the repairs and re-finished my Sunfish daggerboards and rudders.

goodbye summer

Curtains fall, fashions fade, an endless summer over
Another tide to launch an autumn moon over the dunes
