Sailing through life

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Attempting to avoid the “scattered showers” that never appeared, I went to my go-to place in order to be close to home just in case the weatherman was right this time…

I finally got to see inside the Cooper River Yacht Club and sneak a peek at the youth summer sailing camp. Listening to the tweens talk about their experience as I took photos, they asked one another, “How was it?!” and compared the number of times each one fell in the water as I watched several boys being towed in by staff. Every time I ride by the club and/or the crew house, I think to myself, “Why not try it?” One of these days I just might…”Let’s Do This” is what got me through a multiple two-hour loop of the river today, but the water out of that fountain tasted like it looked…possibly siphoned from the river itself? Perhaps the graffiti was some kind of warning label…

A year ago today, I was sailing on the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel.

Needless to say, it was just as hot, but the sunshine was much more appealing. Difficult to explain until you’ve been there, it’s an addictive land that calls you back over and over again. We’re counting the days to our return next year when me and the hubby will visit the kid and celebrate Purim in Jerusalem…

Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free”
