Almost Speechless Sunday - Galveston Bay


As some folks know, our friend owns a Beneteau sailboat which is moored at the Houston Yacht Club in Shore Acres TX. . We spent Saturday night on his boat. This was the second time we spent the night and slept on his boat. My oldest step-son and his soon ( hopefully) to be fiance came down this morning and we went sailing for about 2 hours or so. The winds were blowing at 17-24 MPH. Sailors know how difficult it is to sail on a 38 foot boat in winds at these speeds. Our friend and my step-son are both very good sailors and we had a fun experience. I was concerned when the gusts were at 24 MPH and higher but no worries as everything went just fine. Obviously I am not a sailor to say the least.. LOL..


Below are a few pictures I took. As a side note, my IPhone which I used to take the pictures was taking forever to load the pictures onto my MacBook Air.. ??? I sent myself an Email with the pictures as an attachment. The loading is still taking place and it is now over 2 hours..

My mother made one trip to Galveston, when she was 16.  She talked about that vacation for the rest of her days.

Good morning Bob.  Sailing in a stiff breeze is when it gets to be fun.  But not for the faint of heart.

I used to sail smaller boats and cats when I was younger.  I love to sail but haven't been since 1972.  Hope to revive the interest in a few years.
