Cap'n Tom

Went for a walk before lunch, after the meeting at the Rec Center to welcome us and tell us all about everything available in the immediate area and fairly close by, as well. We can even get on the ferry to the Outer Banks, if we choose.

Well, we spent part of this afternoon on a sailboat with Captain Melinda. She is one awesome sailor. Very enjoyable sail on her 43-foot sloop. Center is a pic of Melinda talking to one of the other passengers. You can't tell from this pic how TINY she is. She has sailed this sailboat to the Bahamas and back, by herself. Above is Tom, enjoying the cruise.

Below is Cap'n Tom! Actually, he was the helmsman. He spent a good 45 minutes steering after we were in full sail.

It's been a glorious day! Beautiful, sunny, nice breeze, great day for sailing!! Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!
