It seems I survived the weekend. A weekend which I might add was quite wet.
Saturday was Waverunner day. And there were plenty of waves. And wind. It got calmer towards the end of the day - but it was still not the best day to be out. Or was it? You see, when it is "not the best day" there are less idiots out on the water - making it a GREAT day to be out!
Or are there MORE idiots out, because everyone else has enough sense to stay home? Got me - that is a good question.
I say "a little of both".
Notice the cool soft sided cooler I have on the back of the thing. The red bag is my rescue throw line. I am not required to have a rescue throw line in a bag - but I have one anyway.
Sunday was "help run a sailboat race" day. This operation requires a real boat. Something with a deck. Not a problem, I have one of those too.
Sunday was a really bad day. The wind was even higher, and the bay was rough. Of course, there is always good and bad. The good is that the sailboats were fast. This meant the races were over faster. Which meant that I was home sooner!
It was also rainy. I got rained on a few times. There is nothing you can do except sit there and get wet.
But I lived. My maritime skills were sufficient that I did not require a rescue.
But today - today is serious business! I have some important things to do. Namely, go before a panel of people and answer questions. Something about a possible new line of work. A job interview.
I hope the results of the interview are favorable. For me. Steady work is good work.
