Hey everyone happy Fourth!
I celebrated as I always do, by competing in the Westlake Yacht Club's annual 'Round the Island race. It didn't go as planned; the wind was foul and my passage under the bridge was slow, impeded by Murphy, and I did not win.
I did have a great time, as always, and reflected on living in a country where sailing a boat under a low bridge is my biggest problem.
My good friends Mark and Rhonda live right on the water in Marina del Rey, and host a party every year to watch the annual fireworks show in the harbor, and we all settled down to a beautiful evening of controlled explosive watching. Yay!
Tomorrow there will be fireworks of a different kind, internationally, as the Tour de France gets under way (in Leeds, England!), and the Netherlands tries to advance to the World Cup semi-finals against Costa Rica (go Oranje!). And who knows I might do a little coding. Onward...
