Doesn’t get better than this

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

A great day on the water with family. Mike E joined us from DC and Cate C from Essex. Heather and C-Bug came along. Grabbed a mooring at Angel Island for a couple hours, then a slip in Alaya cove when one opened up. Commence sand castle building and stand up paddleboarding. It doesn’t get any better.

Cheers California!

Beautiful sailor.
