On the Water

We went sailing yesterday! We met James and Debbie at their boat slip at 4:15 p.m. for a sailing race across Joe Pool Lake and back. As it turns out, there was about ZERO wind, but we still went out and learned a whole lot. It is amazing how far you can go even when it seems like the wind isn’t blowing at all. James and Debbie are the sweetest people, and super helpful. They are great teachers – even without wind in the sails. I was so pleased because I could tell all my hard work studying has really paid off already. I knew what James was talking about the whole time!
