Original forecast (yesterday) was for wind all day. When I woke up it changed to wind in the late afternoon. I was bummed. But a day at the beach, aint bad. @2pm I headed to Avon, no wind. Lots of clouds and a few sprinkles. I went to check out a few shops, then when I got back it was starting to fill in nice. It turned into a great afternoon of sailing. I sailed basically until I was tired and sloppy. It was great. Lots of happy windsurfers, and a few unhappy kiters who weren't ready for the increase in wind. They held their kites straight in the air and were being dragged to shore. One had lost his board. A windsurfer picked it up for him. Forecast is for a beautiful sunny day, but no wind for tomorrow. Going fishing in the morning and hangout on the beach in the afternoon. It has been a great trip.
