braver each day

A small flotilla headed out to sea this afternoon. Mr. C was in the lead (though it was really just by chance that he ended up there). The winds were really high today and I would have agreed with any of the four kids in the class if they hesitated about going out. I would have been worried if I were a 7 or 8 year old. But no, they just rigged their sails and hopped in with a little help from their instructor. Then a few reaches across the harbor and when everyone was ready they headed into the wind to sail to Christmas Cove and back. I wish I could be out there sailing with them both for the enjoyment of sailing and wanting to know what C is thinking as captain of his own ship.
