"Nice? It's the ONLY thing," said the Water Rat solemnly... "Believe me, my young friend, there is NOTHING--absolutely nothing--half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."
~ Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
I was very lucky to be invited to mess about in a sailboat this past week, a sailboat in which the captain(s), crew, cooks, and bottle washers were us! In other words, a group of eight friends, some of whom actually know how to sail a sizable boat, got together to explore the Abacos Islands in the northern Bahamas.
Of course, it was wondrous to leave a cold gray northern clime and enter suddenly a world of color, bloom, and warmth. I am very grateful for the opportunity to have shared this adventure with dear friends.
I'll share some of the photos here on the blog, and will continue my pattern of bouncing daily from place to place on this beautiful, beleaguered planet of ours.
Off to put this in Soup du jour
Mr. Sparkle is also in a land of color, bloom, and warmth- Trinidad!
I am so jealous!
Looking forward to more!
