Scotch/Rye, Upsidedown cake, chips

01 August 2013
We're on a sail boat, right? So yesterday we sailed from Frankfurt, MI to Kawanee, WI, 8 to 9 knots broad reach, now that's not sexist, just a legitimate point of sail. Lucky Bird like broad reaches, so do Alice and I, Kody not so much too much healing and rolling.

A dinner at the local watering hole was a great experience. Local folks talked about themselves and we listened. Good stories, good people, real people.

Last night Kody slipped attempting to board the boat and went for an unexpected swim. This is the second time we've had to pull this dog from the water, this time she went completely under. Fortunately dogs have very short memories and she was back up and down to the dock.

Sailing today down the coast of WI, Alice decided to do some baking. She decided on a pineapple upside-down cake. I'm doing all the work sailing LB while she's baking. Actually LB was sailing herself with Vivaldi so I was actually just reading.

After docking in Sheboygan, WI we hiked to the liquor store to buy some dinner. Scotch, rye and some chips. So for dinner it was booze, cake and chips, now doesn't that sound lake vacation eating?

This is our second journey south to the Caribbean. This time we've chosen to exit Lake Michigan and proceed south through the in-land waterway system to Mobile. We'll start around Labor Day and take our time exploring the history of middle America.
