My first solo row to shore. Climbing over the stern and lowering myself into the dinghy caused a few rapid heartbeats - it was a LONG step. The row itself was great, even easy with just me in the dinghy, no bicycle, no Dick, no bags of stuff.
Getting back out was another story. Dick had to MacGyver an intermediate step between the dinghy seat and the deck so I could get back onboard.
Lot of family celebrations on the beach
For Dick today, in addition to enjoying phone calls from both his sons,he also received the first loaf of wheat bread using Mike’s recipe,
and a batch of oatmeal cookies slightly burned around the edges due to the propane oven I use.
