On the water

Schroeder and I rigged up the boat and started sailing about 11.30am, but the grey cloud and cool breeze didn't improve, and we got quite cold. At 2pm we pulled the boat out and came home. It was a good breeze, and the boat went well, but we didn't take enough warm clothing, expecting the cloud to burn away. We'll go again tomorrow, as the overnight rain and cloud should be gone by lunchtime - we're optimists!

I can't resist linking to The Onion's "Top 10 Stories Of The Last 4.5 Billion Years". It starts with "Evolution going great, reports trilobyte", moves through "Sumerians Look On In Confusion As God Creates World" and finishes with "Four Or Five Guys Pretty Much Carry Whole Renaissance". The Sumerians are probably the best - a tip of the hat to Logan Moss for that one.
