Attrition: from 15 to 5
Yes it was hot earlier today. And yes, some boaters had prior commitments. But five boats enjoyed a second happy hour on MicMac tonight out on the hook on the eastern branch of Carter's Creek. More yummy appetizers and sailing tales including the one about polyester mites that attack gel coat.
"What bliss to be in the cockpit with the sun and the warm breeze on one's skin, just watching the sea, and the sky, and the sails" -Sir Francis Chichester
"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the things you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from your safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
"He who goes to sea for pleasure would go to Hell for a pastime." -Samuel Johnson
"They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the wonders of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep" -Psalm 107
