Sailing lessons/ Watery Wednesday

Sailing lessons, Rochester, New York

Yesterday was a cloudy, muggy, windy day in Upstate New York where I have been for a few days but these kids were having a wonderful time learning to sail. And none of them seemed to mind that their boat was number 13...and, although several other boats tipped over, this one stayed upright during the entire lesson.

I have quite a few posts to read and respond to so I'm hoping to get around to all of you very soon.

I am linking to Watery Wednesday where you can find many more watery photos.

It sounds as if these students had a perfect day to be out on the water. I'm glad '13' was a good number for them.

there's something so peaceful and almost sepia-like about this photo. I like all the geometry going on too.
