Calvin's first solo

the new driver
Originally uploaded by Southworth Sailor.
Calvin passed his driving test today and is the proud possessor of a Washington State driver's license. Parking has proved his biggest challenge, but with persistence he has mastered it. After passing the test, we had to wait for another aggravating hour, listening to numbers before they would take our twenty-five dollars and Calvin's picture. All this while three windows sat empty. The Kitsap County DMV office is the epitome of customer disservice. Another accomplishment of the day was to take the boat out of the water for the winter. Calvin met me at the launch and helped me take down the mast. Both boats are safely in the upper parking area, creating a eye sore for the neighborhood. In a week or so, I'll have them cleaned up and tucked away beside the house for the winter.
