Unstable Weather

Sailed or rather tried to, yesterday. Left Quanset Pond via ash breeze to Pleasant Bay. Set sail and wind dropped to zero and backed with black sky. Dropped the mast, hauled the rudder & centerboard and rowed back to the pond.

This day was great. Had favorable wind to and from the pond, but couldn't make it to the outer beach. Even though URCHIN will sail in four inches of water, three and a half is just to thin to pull her three hundred pounds across. We reached a low tide beach in the marsh behind Little Sipson before running out of water. Lovely day on a very crowded beach.

The last pic is Mom's garden. Love the lavender and so do the bumbles.
