Today was an exciting day for us. Charlie's family paid us a visit and we went sailing! They also delivered Charlie's truck after charging a dead battery and buying gas! Plus they brought needed supplies - BEER
Kelley's - Cassie, Brad and Elmer (4)
Traub's - Carly, Matt and Charlie (2)
The day turned out to be perfect. After the hour motor boat ride to Charlotte Harbor we hoisted sails in light and variable winds. We didn't care - we were together.
But the wind built to a steady 8-10 - absolutely perfect for their first sail with Charlie's grandsons on TARDIS
We sailed 20nm in perfect waters of Charlotte Harbor
Elmer and Charlie had a great time. Elmer played cars and ate so he could take his life jacket off below.
Elmer never naps but Charlie does and zonked out. Perfect.
Elmer also is interested in the electronics and watched them closely
He also is in NINJA training so walking about a moving TARDIS is a piece of cake.
Everyone took their turn at the helm and did great. It's allot different than a tiller. When I get photos of other's steering they will be added but here is Brad at the helm.
While others steered Eileen and Charlie got to enjoy the day.
Here's a couple more happy couple pics
When we got back to the dock we went to Harpoon Harry's on Fisherman's Wharf for dinner and games (Elmer beat Charlie at air hockey!) Tired and hungry...
