A New Way to Show Patience

June 22, 2017

As I’ve said before, I’m not really a patient person, and sometimes, I’ve rushed to get out on the water, only to find out — after coming back in — that if I’d just waited 30 minutes or so, I would have had a great day on the water.  Well, today, I still didn’t wait long enough, but I learned new patience by simply waiting a little longer than usual to have some fun.  And it worked!

I started with the main reefed, then shook it out to get more speed.  Even though I haven’t been out very much this year, it still felt good.  Kissed the bay, but really didn’t feel the need to go farther into it — the river was just fine.  An excellent sweet day.
