This week’s challenge, One Love. As a recent love, we are into sailing, the sheer joy of being at the whims of the wind, and the acquiring of an ancient skill. No noise except the wind in the sails and the water moving along your waterline. The picture I have chosen is of our first solo sail on Kootenay Lake in British Columbia, Canada.
The maiden post for this site will have to be the maiden voyage of the newly purchased 25 foot O’Day sailboat. The boat was formerly owned by some very good friends in Saskatchewan. They delivered the vessel to our location near Balfour BC on Kootenay Lake in the Canadian Rockies. Took a quick video as we did a shakedown sail on Sunshine Bay.
The sailing is something we will touch on quite often, as this is something Lori and I have tossed around for several years now as a potential retirement thing, or at worst, a leisure activity.
