Blue skies and calm seas

So finally the dreary snow, ice, howling wind and general atmospheric misery has given way to blue skies and calm seas. Walking along the sea front this morning there were 3 gigs plying their oars in the bay and a fleet of dinghies out from the sailing club. Further offshore there is little trade. It is certain that here in Swanage the first hint of clear weather sees us all race to get back into our own particular craft and take to the seas again. Hopefully I can get a peaceful paddle in this afternoon with no demands from my pager...
