Can I call us weekend warriors if we were actually there Sunday and Monday?? We have been working more normal schedules and our adapted weekend turned out to be an excellent decision, with *perfect* weather (it was 80! in October!) and not a soul in sight.
Jon even managed to catch us some fishies for dinner… although I think he had seaweed on the line at this point…
Jon’s uncle came by for a visit on the way there (hard to believe he could catch us in our speedy little Brio, isn’t it??) and gave us a wave and a couple of pictures…
Jon’s mom caught me red-handed (pink-toed?) in the middle of my favourite sailing past-time… toenail painting 🙂
And Damariscove Island ended up being one of the most beautiful islands we’ve ever visited… with a perfect skinny slot of an anchorage, courtesy rowboats (clearly they don’t know my need for speed), and great walking trails…
It was extra fun to have a photography-buddy (Jon is very definitely not into having his picture taken simultaneously by both his wife and his mother but it was pretty funny to try :P)
I think he’d rather just skip rocks…
Oh and proof of Jon’s fishing prowess. Luckily he caught us 3 of these tasty little guys… I devoured mine! 🙂
**Aside: I published this and then realized that I’m already quoting temperatures in Fahrenheit. Not bad for 6 weeks of adjusting, eh? 😉
Thanks Auntie Dana!! It was a pretty perfect weekend 🙂
So glad you are still loving life and sail. I am loving the Adriatic sail opportunity.
Take care and keep smiling,
Sounds amazing Maureen — your pictures have been very inspiring!!! Enjoy those warm waters for us!!
