Grand Bend, ON, August 2011
About this photo: It's been a great week for triangles, but all good things must eventually come to an end. If you're still on the geometric fence, click here. Otherwise, we're back at 7 p.m Eastern - tonight! - with our new Thematic theme for the coming week. What will it be? How does edible grab you?I learned to sail when I was 13 years-old. My logic? What better way to get around the lake than by letting the wind shove you around? The lazy kid in me felt pretty darn smug as I tacked back and forth and watched the canoeists and rowers work themselves into a sweat.
I haven't sailed in years. Life got in the way, and not living near a major body of water pushed my dreams of Laser ownership into the distant past. But that doesn't mean I don't get a twinge every time I see a sailboat cruise past the beach. I wonder if the folks on board have similar dreams of easy, inexpensive transport. I wonder if they get that same feeling of almost magical control when the wind fills the sails and begins to move the boat. I sure hope so.
Your turn: Did you ever do the boating thing?
