Thoughts on the Thorny PathBill

Here, Isobel has lost her sense of humor on some long slog off the south coast of the Dominican Republic... We try to encourage her to "ride the bucking bronco", look at the clouds and see what you can see, sing "farmer in the dell" and make up new lyrics, etc... but at a certain point it is just not fun going to windward...

The squall swept through at about 11 am, dropping hail the size of peas for a few minutes... Ten minutes later the sun was hitting the foliage on the New York side, highlighting the beginning of the color change. This is my favorite part of the foliage season, when a few trees are brilliant against the background of green. No one is on the lake today... well almost no one. We chased a burgundy hulled sail boat for a few minutes before opting to drop the anchor in Owlshead Bay and hang out for the day. After anchoring Lara headed for her berth to curl up with a book under a down comforter. I tidied up a few lines and chatted with some women passing in Kayaks. That is when the squall blew through. A 25 knot wind is not much for big Be Here Now. Lara didn't even notice. I rigged the anchor snubber just in case.
