Sailing..Takes Me Away

My son is attending a two-week beginner sailing camp.  Every time I drop him off or pick him up, I am blown away by the beauty of the harbor filled with sailboats.  I have never sailed, but my mom sailed for years, ending when I was about ten or eleven.  For the life of me, I cannot figure out if my visceral reaction to the boats is one of nostalgia for time spent at the sailing club as a kid or if it's merely a feeling of peacefulness created by the combination of sailboats and water.  How on earth did I ever live inland?

  1. Why not try it with your son? Chris and I do it all the time. Andrea joined us North Carolina in May to sail in a regatta there.

    Your picture has no wind-- a not very pleasant time to try sailing!
