I went Sailing Again.

Sailing on Boston Harbor

This afternoon Zach and I took advantage of a Meetup group in Boston to go sailing on the ‘C’est si bon’, a 46ft Formosa out of Marina Bay, south of Boston. I’d sailed with Ralph before, but this was the first time I was able to go with my son Zach. It ended up beingRead More

Heading for the Hills

This has been rattling around since last Wednesday (5 daysRead More
