We went to Windy Peninsula. No crowds today?? The wind was super light, but good enough for teaching. The lake water level is way down. Lots of submerged tree stumps close to shore. Be careful!

Evan is making steady improvement. If he decides he wants to really do it, he can. Right now, he is just a bit unsure and lazy. I just sailed close by him coaching him a little, but he did the rest. It really is a hard sport to learn. His board is a bit small for him, but he is doing great. I saw him make some great saves today, and take a lot more initiative. I was proud of him.
