On December 23 before a big storm broke, we had 10 mph winds on Tims Ford, so I took out my first build: an 11 foot lapstrake Shellback dinghy designed by Joel White. Five hours of fast sailing with nothing but the sound of water gurgling under the hull. A peaceful break before the hectic days of Christmas.

It was sunny and cold, but the day was 2 seconds longer than yesterday. Moki and I went for a paddle on Lake Dimmick to celebrate. We saw a flock of 20 or more geese, a pair of raccoons, a blue heron, a soaring red tailed hawk, and, of course, deer. All the wildlife interested Moki to no end.
