Indigo Under Sail


Finally, after 12,000 miles of travel, we got a few photos of "Indigo" under sail. We accomplished this with the perfect combination: it was a sunny day with a light but steady wind; we had our son, Sam, and his partner Kate Gigler on board; and Sam is an experienced dinghy driver. This is the kind of messing around in boats that has characterized our month in Barkley Sound.

A postscript: we tried to post this blog entry using the single sideband radio, and the photo didn't find it's way to the blog. Now that we have a good internet connection, I am posting the original photo and one more. We are becoming aware that there is a world of difference between the beefy internet that is called broadband (the norm in most of the wired world these days)and the simpler forms that support messages of around 300 to 800 bytes to be sent from remote locations. For comparison, check your normal email, remembering that kilobytes are bytes times 1000!

If you published the photos, they did not come thru. At least on my web server.

I can't see any photos either.

Say hi to Sam for me.
