Wednesday Night Regatta at the Lake


We (my wife and I) finally took the opportunity to enjoy a summer night out at Lake Michigan in Holland (State Park). And we remembered to go on a Wednesday night – sailboat racing night. So we packed up our chairs, books, goodies, and parked ourselves along the channel to stick our feet in the cool sand, relax, read, and watch the boats.


It was a great night for the weekly regatta, a long-time summer ritual in Holland on Wednesday nights. The winds were strong and steady, the racing sails shimmered in the sun, the jibs were billowing, and the boats cut through the waves on the big lake like butter.



And when the boats are done competing and they head for the channel before sunset, the parade is a pleasure to watch.




Yes, Deane, I do miss sailing. Maybe someday we can have one together again. Until then, I dream. πŸ™‚

Ah, but the Captain Sundaes treat on the way home…. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
