Phil's Back and Settling In at GRYC

Phil got back Friday morning at 9am after driving all night from Marion, Mass.  He dropped off Captain Dave and his son, Michael David, just past Buffalo, NY - had breakfast at Bob Evans (knew he was desperate to eat there) and then made it home.  Unfortunately, his cell phone had died after talking to me (I didn't do it!) and he's in the process of getting a new one.  Hopefully, it will be delivered tomorrow at his sister's house.  Please call Lorraine cell phone if you need to reach him in the next few days.

Phil's sister's Kathleen and Virginia along with his nieces, Megan and Beth, came to visit us today at the yacht club and we went sailing to try and beat the heat and humidity.  At 10am it was 86F according to the thermometer on our table - in the shade.  Felt like 90+.  this is Virginia and Katie - see how there were minimal waves?
The winds were SW 10 - 12 knots, then died to about 9 knots when we came back to Fairport Harbor.  Here is a picture of most of us.  Beth, Megan and my daughter, Katie, hanging on the fender we attached to the stern of Changes.  It was so hot that - drum roll please - I went swimming!  Here is the photo to prove it !
The water was comfortable and it felt good to cool down.  Above I'm with Megan and Beth Jaworski, our nieces.  Below is the girls, Megan, Beth, and Katie.
This is Megan and Kathleen Jaworski looking beautiful.

Then we came back to the dock and had some beet, kidney bean and couscous salad, hotdog, italian sausage and chocolate cake for dessert.  We had a good time and are now trying to decide whether to go see the Fairport Fireworks in the dinghy or not go at all.  First a shower is in order.

  1. Hi Lorraine and Phil,
    Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your "countdown blog," and that I very much hope you continue to update us with your adventures.
    About the subscriptions: I looked over the choices and opened a few to see what they were. Since I am totally not interested in the whole computer social network scene and do not have any social or home pages, I will just have to hope that you can still notify us by good ol' email whenever a new blog is posted. I would really appreciate it if you could do this.
    Hope to see you both this weekend.
