Saturday was an odd-duck day at the Heron Lake Marina. Relatively few people showed up for the planned racing, so people just went sailing for fun. Ed, the New Mexico Sailing club's commodore, took a family out sailing for a new experience. At first, they had no wind and were doing a "bob and bake", but some strong puffs came in to make life exciting for a while.
Hanging out at the marina during part of the weekend was a nice break from digging a drainage ditch and other chores. And, even the drive to and from a hundred-dollar grocery shopping trip in Chama was powerfully scenic and relaxing.
