Harpswell, ME. Friday Evening.

I went for a sail on our Laser ( 4.07 meters LOA) with Titus and Teegan (sp.?) this afternoon. They are a brother and sister aged 11 and 8 respectively. We explored coves and islands along the coast, talked about wind and dolphins, and wondered why sailors call food "grub."

When we got back to the dock, T&T took the canoe back to the shore while I tied up the boat. I enjoyed the swim.

Now the setting sun lightens all the greens and blues in natures resolution, like an organist pulling out all the stops at the end of a fugue. There are some moments which are so beautiful that the shivers run from my back straight into my heart.
