The weather seemed iffy. Strong winds and cloudy from our vantage point on the creek. It promised to be a blustery sail, but we were deceived by the land breeze.
Out on the bay it was perfect: 8-10 knots of SW breeze made for smooth sailing in the lee of the southwestern shore of Herring Bay. Many clouds frowned by, but none were sad enough to cry, leaving only shadows for contrasty photos with nice backdrops.
There were many boats out today – mostly sailboats, for obvious reasons. We enjoyed the parade of sails. The moderate breezes and temperatures made for a perfect two hours on the water, and after 8.16 nautical miles, we were back in our slip tying up.
