This week was a great first week of school. Our students are seem wonderful and our staff is fired up for a great year. I will blog about my class this week some time. This morning I poured a little cement for my neighbor and then spent the afternoon sailing. I couldn't pass this opportunity up as my 2008 sailing days are numbered with fall approaching. It was a satisfying sail! The wind freshened and the clouds dissipated as the afternoon wore on. At first, I was just going to sail around Blake Island, but after beating my way up to the north end, Rich Passage looked very inviting. I sailed to Watauga Beach and took some pictures of the house I worked at this summer. There was a strong breeze by then and I had a quick broad reach back to Southworth.
