We just returned from a week of sailing. We took a sailing course and had an instructor on board for the entire week and learned the exciting sport of sailing. Steve and I and Jeni and Brian came with us and we had a wonderful time. The weather was great, and we learned so much in just 5 days!!
Here is a picture of all of us on the last day. The wind was high and we had the boat leaning over - Wow it was a great time.
We learned how to handle the sail boat, navigate using the ocean charts, saw the most beautiful scenery on earth, and enjoyed being together.

Last Summer we spent a week out on the coast off of Vancouver Island in a beautiful place called Poets Cove. We watched the sail boats coming and going all week, and decided to go sailing this summer. Steve took a course this past winter on navigation and Steve and I, and Brian and Jeni are all going sailing for a week with an instructor. By the end of the week we will be certified as day skippers. I think it will be quite an adventure, and hopefully lots of fun. I will post pics as soon as we return.
We traveled Saturday late afternoon to Butte then drove the rest of the way to Utah on Sunday, arriving about 3. Taylor was a good traveler, although she had a hard time keeping her seat belt on!!
It was was a wonderful time to have the family together and reminissce about Grandad and remember the good times!!
