Messing About in Boats

There is nothing - absolutely NOTHING - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats...  -the wind in the willows

Today was a perfect day.  My daughter Alex has been in a "sailing camp".  Today was the end of the camp, with a million kids sailing in a relay race and a barbeque.  She ended up taking three of her friends out all by herself, in gusty winds, with her proud dad standing on the dock watching.

When I was a kid I spent summers sailing, and I'm sure glad to be passing on the tradition.  There is absolutely nothing half so much worth doing...
