I’m one of the luckier people on the planet right now. We drove through Texas this morning and part of the afternoon, arriving at Austin YC around 3 p.m. central time. We had lines of storms on the way with just buckets of water. The trees were beginning to sprout green but with endless ramshackle houses on flat lands along the way. As soon as we reached the Austin area things prettied up and it got hilly. There are dark green cedars or maybe they are junipers on the hills, and the glimpses into the Lake Travis valley was an almost stunning surprise. We are going to be comfortable in our camper, with a bit of a view to the east through some trees to the water. We’re close to the clubhouse, where there are bathrooms with showers. With the remnants of the storm, the wind is whistling and chiming through the rigging of the sailboats and birds are singing. The trees next to us have Spanish moss hanging in them. I’ve learned that tomorrow evening there are Laser and Sunfish races in the evening, so I hope to get in on that for some practice. I’ll definitely go sailing tomorrow and I’ll probably use my dry suit. The water is 58 degrees. Better than home.
