The weather was great, no big waves. It's all about the wind. The wind was right on the bow (in our face), & Scott & I trimmed the sails really well....we tacked 6 times. (That's where the experienced giggle) ....but I dont care. For newbies like us, it was a perfect day of sailing. Good teamwork. It's taken us a long time to get to this level of sailing. Yay Us!!! The pay off...2 awesome days at Tahiti Beach.
Yesterday, all our cruising friends were here hanging out on the beach.
For Happy Hour we all came together for a "Dinghy Drift." A 1st for Scott & I. It reminded us of tubing down the Salt River at home. Everybody meets out in the middle of the bay, tie our dinghys together, & drift wherever the wind takes us while passing around snacks & drinks. We watch the sunset & then everybody unties, starts their motors & head back to their boats. So fun!!! Hope to have more dinghy drifts in the future.
Love & Miss everyone at home sooo much. XXXOOO
