Evanston: the ten day winter; fantastic; aground
Winter officially begins on December 21. It will end for me ten days later when I fly to Savannah as Carol and I decided over the weekend. Ten days is winter enough.
Here is a link to a video of a New Zealander who did the annual Auckland to Bay of Islands race on a kiting foiler. I am still smiling and am about to watch it again.
I have often been in the Bay of Islands when that race ends. The video makes me homesick for a place that unfortunately is not my home.
The above photo came from Steve Earley, but because he and Tom Head and the standing dog—do they never let the poor beast sit down?—are in it I don’t know who took it.
They look quite happy considering they have run aground.
It was probably the dog’s fault.
