Back in Sydney NS

We had a great time at the beach yesterday with Jennifer, William and Leeland. There were some waves so Jen and William surfed a bit.  I went in and boggie boarded for awhile as did Leeland. Grandpa supervised from the comfort of his beach chair.  We flew kites, built sand castles and had a great lunch.  What a lovely day, thanks for organizing it Jen.  
The day before we went out in Jen's new hobbie cat for a sail.  There wasn't a lot of wind but William came on the boat with me and got the basics of steering and using the main sheet down. Later his Mom took him out and demonstrated how to tip and upright the craft.  He had so much fun that he wanted to do it again and again and again. It was fun to watch him try and stay on the high side and then get flipped off as he went vertical in the air! 
We are busy getting boat chores done and we are about half way through my list.  It is raining today which will delay the hull polishing that I think we should do in order to maintain the lovely new paint job we got two years ago. We are going to leave for Halifax on Wed. Barry's sister Kim and her husband Brent will be there on a cruise on the 22 so we are planning to meet. Then Jen is having her eyes re lasered on the 24 and the boys will spend the night with us so she and Mark can get some rest.
