Last post from the Zodiac

These are what slides up the mast to hold the sail
The sail and the things in the first picture when the sail is up

Interesting way to coil a line

One of the crew up the mast before we sailed

Beautiful old wood from 1924

More of the cabinets in the right hand corner you can
see glasses hanging from the ceiling

More pictures from the Zodiac

The sunset was so perfect
I think god was giving me a little treat

What can I say

Me at the Helm

Sails and shadows

Clouds in the sails

Sailing on the Zodiac

Here are a few pictures of my wonderful three hour sail.
I only wish it had been three years .

This is the ships bell. The Zodiac was built in 1924

Click to see the date on the bell

All of the people on bored helped raise the sails even me.

This is the Zodiac just before we set sail

One of the life boats

It was a sunset cruise and WOW .
I have a lot more pictures maybe tomorrow.

This is one of my favorites

This month has been so hectic every thing came due ,six month diabetic
Dr. appointment,blood work.mammogram,meeting with my dietitian.
Now that it is all done and everything is good I reduced my A1c to 5.9
My Dr. told my to brag and that I am her poster child.
That ship in my picture is called the Zodiac and tomorrow I am going to sail on her.
It is only a three hour cruise,but I am so excited I just hope we don't end up
on Gillian's Island or maybe that would be ok for a while.
I will have pictures when I return.

I was walking around campus and I ran into these lovely Lilies.
The white one smelled very sweet and nice.
