What is that bright light in the sky?  We all stared squinting into the strange bright light. ” Its the sun” she cried.  “the what?  the sun , its the sun!”.

And so it is, spring is here.  Today its sunny and warm, no jacket, no rain jacket, its is as beautiful day as I have ever seen.  Today is a day for sailing, I still have no engine but I do have a good crew.

I had the funniest thing happen the other night, out of nowhere there was a beautiful girl standing beside my boat smiling back at me.  I don’t know why but the ratio at the marina is like this, boys 99% girls1% under 30, 1% over 50, 98% So it was pretty interesting that the one girl in the marina had come looking for me.

She asked if She could borrow a socket wrench.  Sure I replied what can I help you fix, she rolled her eyes at me.  “I don’t need help fixing my boat I can do that myself, I just dropped my socket overboard and would like to borrow yours :)”.  I invited her in for a beer, our conversation turned to sailing and her most recent passage to Cabo.  I was highly impressed by this young girl and not only invited her to crew but also challenged her to a race.

I don’t chase girls and didnt bother asking for her number but I have a feeling I will be racing her and her all male crew across the bay today.  As for me since I still have no source of propulsion it will be push it out and pray.

Autumn arrives in early morning, but spring at the close of a winter day.
