Just me, sharing thoughts, photos, quotes, adventures and daily life unless nobody reads it.
Then it's just me. Enjoy. Or not.

We were out for an early afternoon sail because the winds were up and we were trying to get closer to a tall ship seeking safe harbor in the bay when the gusts really picked up. Erich thought we should seek shelter on Batchawana Island til things calmed down a bit. After almost two hours we decided to return with only the jib sail and the going was still very swift. What a Wild Ride! 17' sailboat and 4' waves on Lake Superior.
Erich has sailed oceans and Great Lakes including the Trans-Superior Race so I was comfortable trusting his expertise. I didn't get any shots of the big waves because I was hanging on!
I'll add a few pics from the island in my next post.
