I have pains in my back, wrists, and butt. It rained most of the morning and finally cleared up by the end of the day. Although I'd like to be in recovery mode, I still have to strategize how to get out on the water today.
By the middle of the day, its warm, almost hitting 80F with no winds at all. I invite my girlfriend to come with me after work for a ride on the bow of the Laser. I didn't mean for that to sound as kinky as it did.
It was super calm for Clark's Cove with a great sunset and big big clouds. We launched and who would you know was also out... The Azorean Whale Boats LOL. Practicing in very light, upcapsizable air. Lucky them.
We sailed over towards them so I could show my girlfriend their boats. They didn't seem to friendly when we got close, only one person waved out of 15 or so.
We turned around and had a great waxing gibbons lighting the course back to the boat ramp.
When we got back to the ramp, just after dark, a NB Port Security vehicle pulled up, the security officer got out and walk right at us assuming we were up to no good. Once along side our car, he was able to see the Laser hiding behind us at which point he backed off very quickly with "Oh, I didn't see you had a boat behind you and just wanted to see what was going on. You have a parking sticker, right?" And that was over about as quick as it started. Does this make four police contacts for sailtember now? Or five if you count the pissing cop in Freetown...
We went over for ice cream at Dairy Maid and drove down to the parking lot for the Dartmouth side of Clarks Cove. WTF! The Azorean Whale Boat people are having a party in the parking lot. By land or by sea, I can't seem to be able to get away from these folks! LOL
