Sailing, earlier today

I love this photo for a number of reasons.

In the boat in front of us is my wife and my eldest son. Nikki doesn't sail, not in anything that has the slightest chance of tipping her in, anyway.

Today she and a friend did a sponsored capsize to raise money for some dogs the Rescue is working with.

All very noble.

But the thing I love in this picture, taken from my boat shortly after the capsize as we were reaching back and forth to let the auto bailers work their magic...

The smile on her face.

I think today she conquered a fear and caught a taste of why I'm so in love with the water and wind.

And she trusted our eldest boy, whom I in good part taught to sail, to look after her.

Very proud of him.
