    Default Signs of spring

    My birdwatcher friends gauge spring by the arrivals of migrating birds. Some friends are stalking the roseate tern this afternoon.

    To wooden boat junkies hereabouts the emergence of the Concordia yawls is their key indicator of spring.

    Nice, Jim!


    Fog.
    The smell of lilac.
    Weakfish.
    Southwesterlies become prevailing.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    I like it!
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
    Skiing is the next best thing to having wings.

    Think we could get David Attenborough to do a clip on the migrating habits of Concordia Yawls?

    The female yawl is just unfurling her jib to display to the male yawl; if he likes the cut of it, they may pair off for a bit of a regatta d’amor…
