As usual, we had a blast staying at Channel Marker. As soon as we docked a whole group of bikers (The Baytown Bunch) showed up for lunch. Michelle and I helped Ernestine and Jamie get the orders out. We had a great time with them. Rainman was celebrating his birthday and so he took a dive into the bayou. I have video that I will post tomorrow - you gotta see this. Of course we took a dinghy ride up the bayou and later on that night there was a band (Tropical Depression) and we danced and danced. Too much fun.
Our sail home was wonderful. After the sails were set John, Michelle and myself took about an hour nap while Troy sailed us home. It was a little cool out on the water, but I keep trying to remind myself that summer is coming and we live in Texas. We'll be wishing for those cool windy days before you know it.
Troy is at Methodist Hospital today for his next PET Scan. We both feel very confident that everything will be fine. Hopefully we will have the test results by tomorrow.
"The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective."-Henry David Thoreau

Could have used a little better sail trim on that jib, but I love the pictures. We were headed out to Moody Gardens in Galveston.
