on the water, again

S.V. Nyon, rounding Trial Island
August has been about sailing, lots of sailing. Short stints, as work keeps us at homeport more than we'd like, but every weekend is an excuse to get off the dock. Friends and family have joined us on our adventures on the water...




Our wharfinger noticed a pretty boat off Clover Point. When she realized it was Nyon, she got her camera out. These are the first photos we have of Nyon undersail since we've owned her.




August was special for many reasons, one being my first "solo" sail...

Chillin' at anchor.
I skippered the boat without Rick onboard. I was fortunate that my sailor friend B. wanted to join in the fun. She was a very encouraging and genial companion to have on this short cruise....





We were also treated with a special visit from Grey Whale in our anchorage.




Here, we are headed out on a different trip - our peeps came along for a short stint to Sidney Spit.
