The Autumn winds are blowing;

Of course I was sailing CIB this weekend. 

But Pete's video gives you a good idea of just how windy it has been this Fall. I've been lucky. Sailing once a week on average. And while I could have had the wind to sail several times a week; my body just takes longer to heal after each session than it used to. I'm just happy I can still do this at my age. My sophomore  roommate from college died of a heart attack this week.  Another reminder of how little time we really have. 

So while I do..I really have nothing to complain about. it's been warm. I have yet to don a drysuit this fall. I'm still sailing in my 6/5/4 with a hood. 3mm boots and some palms mittens and i've been good to go.

The weather is forecasting snow this week. So I guess that is signaling the end of warm weather, and drysuit, or as my friend Phil calls it "the Gloved Season". 

Everything ends, and sooner than you expect. Time for me to get in the game and appreciate the moment. If you know me ; you know I have a little difficulty doing that last bit. But I'll try.

Here is one from Jon... you may have to cut and paste , but it's worth it.

God, I missed Hatteras this year!

This Spring trip to Hatteras was probably the best in years. I missed it. So I have to live vicariously through my friends. I thought you might like to as well.
