We’ve done some maintenance and some goofing off. Left the country. Came back, got sick, got well. I’m not sure how much of the recent twitchy was related to illness and how much was lack of sun. Either way, we both feel better.
This passing weekend finally brought fall’s rain and wind, closing the golden late-summer we enjoyed for so long. We finally took a well-deserved (I think, at least) sailing trip after a summer of serious construction. The Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival was a swimming success (although not any more relaxing than the preparation for it). Here’s a peek at September:
