Each year we've been able to work it out that John and I can get away for a father - son only sailing trip. It's been one of my favorite trips of each year.
Today was a beautiful day for sailing. Perfect winds 8 a 10 knots with occasional gusts up to 10 or 12. You couldn't ask for better weather.
I like these trips because after everything is set and we're drifting with the wind, it's time to talk... it just makes for some nice quality time.
We spent a few hours out... again sailing at different points of sail until we were back to our starting point. Hopefully the days of sailing out and motoring back are behind me.
Afterward we went ashore (catching a couple of photos of Seas The Day on the way back) and had a nice steak dinner at Neil Michaels Steakhouse. (Great suggestion John!)
After taking care of some business (trying to rent our condo), I got back to KYC in time for the last bit of movie night. Tonight's movie was 12 Days of Terror (a special on the shark attacks that took place here 100 years ago).
Finally, I caught the launch out for a nice calm night on the water. It was slightly lighter than this iPhone photo, but the neighbor boats were still just dark shapes between the Manhattan skyline and Seas The Day.
It's always so calm and peaceful out here.
