A nice view of the surrounds is in Barry's blog from an earlier visit. He really captures the feel of the place. It was his idea to meet there and I'm glad we did. Aside from a few always annoying jets skis, you couldn't pick a better place for a Sunday sail. Winds were light and temperatures in the low 80's. The boys and I launched UNA and chased after Barry's midnight blue Melonseed named "Aeon".
Barry built two such boats at once in his basement. Talk about pieces of furniture! He lovingly thought about every detail, some I'm sure he borrowed, but others I know he created. All in all, these elegant boats are truly something to gaze at.

I wish I had taken closer pics, but the day was just about messing about in boats as we slid from shore to shore, looking for that ideal shack and pier along the water's edge. Several met the mark.

Luna took us for a morning sail, Una carried us through the afternoon, and I got to take Aeon for a tail end sail. Just me and a small boat. That's sailing at its essence. Toes dragging in the water as we slid along. I felt like 9 years old again. Thanks Barry!
