The Narrows

West wind today, flat water, azure sky. Slight breeze, started out rowing. In the middle of Pleasant Bay found more wind and hoisted sail. One tack through the narrows and then ghosted over to Hog Island. Eel grass beds look healthy and lush this year. The water seemed deeper than last year, definitly much clearer. Kind of surprises you depthwize. Measure before you step out. It is deeper than you think because it is so clear. Had a pleasant read on the beach and watched the tide come in. The clouds built up so off we sailed for home. Made it back through the Narrows under sail and the wind died. Rowed the rest of the way back.
