Windsurfing & Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Michigan

Finally had some good wind as the week ended.  Saturday was the best day yet.  I sailed 5.7 and 5.4 most of the day and Jeannie was on a 4.0 (or 4.5 ?) and then a 3.7 in the afternoon.  We didn't get in enough sailing this week that I was willing to give up sailing time to take photos - so, unfortunately, I don't really have any good shots to share. 

The 'welcoming' driveway full of snow last night made me wish for a few more days in Bonaire.  I already miss the Hangout Bar:

One last pic of some of the "characters" in Bonaire.  From the left, that's Brendon, the Windsurf Gypsy, and a really nice guy.  Some of you probably read is blog (you can click the link in the last sentence).  Next is Monique.  Monique and her husband, Robert, are the new owners of Jibe City.  On the right is David.  David runs his own business in Buffalo and takes more and more time each year in Bonaire - 8 weeks this year!  He's a model-maker and has done a lot of work to perfect his prosthesis to allow him to windsurf.  He's a good sailor and an inspiration to those of us who find excuses.

Yeah, got back to an ice/snow-filled driveway that I couldn't have gotten through without 4-wheel drive.  Bonaire wasn't great this year, but sheesh, it's better than this. I should have stayed another month.
