The saddest day

They say the two happiest days in a sailor's life are when he buys his boat and when he sells it. I can certainly say what is one of the saddest times: The day the boat is hauled out for the winter. Especially when the boating season has been as short as ours.

At Last was hauled at her home port, Frenchman's Bay Marina in Pickering, Ontario, which, happily, is only five minutes from our home overlooking the bay and Lake Ontario. Thus, we will be able to visit as often as we like over the winter months.

We were one of the last boats hauled out in mid-November. The plan is to be one of the first back in before April's end.
