Picking up girls of all ages is soooo easy. At Bay Roberts the Captain and I had several parties on several boats. This boat--Lady Nora--parked right next to the Captain's boat (it's the 27' minnow to the left of the picture). The owner and his wife were the only ones aboard which made docking in 25 knot winds a bit wrenching for the Captain to watch as it got within a foot of his boat. It turns out the they and the Captain have a number of mutual acquaintances. The Captain did not know he had such high level contacts! He got invited over for dinner and later for coffee and fishcakes for breakfast. This will be the Captain's next boat, I think. Coming home, the Captain and I encountered a small whale who came right up to the boat. Whew they have bad breath. The Captain threw the whale a small bottle of Listerine, but the whale did not eat it. The Captain says this is what they call a "footprint". A humpback will leave a footprint that lasts for almost a minute sometimes. Towards afternoon the winds really kicked up. Here the boat is heeling almost 35 degrees in 25 knot winds. The Captain assures me that the boat will not tip over but I notice he has to stand with one foot on the cockpit floor and the other on the seat on the lower side in order to stand upright. I hope the Captain knows what he is doing. I sure get a good view from here, though! And we are really flying across the water! Sailing is about the most fun thing in the world that you can do under 10 mph!
