My brother was in town this weekend. Although he does a lot of boating, he had never sailed and was interested in the experience. I arranged for him to sail with the club. Even though I am slowly gaining strength and mobility, I am still no where close to be jumping up on the deck of a sailboat or even jumping side-to-side when one tacks, so I went out on the committee boat. It was my first time on the water since my accident on January 9th. It felt good to be back out on the water. It started out being fair day of sailing, but in the third race the wind died. We ended up calling the final race and giving some of the boats a tow back to the marina. Then, while having a beer and telling stories on the porch above the marina, the wind came back up... But we were all done and my brother had a good time and hopefully learned a little and I got to try out my sea legs with a brace on my left leg.

It appears that today is the day those who are doing the A-Z challenge are to reveal their plans. I had kind of already done that, but I'll do it again. For my first A-Z challenge, I'll write about places I would like to experience that are on my bucket list. Look for some interesting off-the-beaten-path ideas. I'm sure I don't have enough years to do it all, but some of them, yeah!
