These warm summer nights have been perfect for sailing lately. Even little Eleanor has her sea legs already! The kids love sailing to these little islands nearby to swim and explore and it really feels like you're a million miles away from the rest of the world. They're always hoping to see some whales, but it's been mostly sea lions and raccoons and deer so far this year. Naomi is our resident sailor, gosh she loves being on the water! It reminds me of my summers spent with my Grandad working on his boat when I was younger, and how great it is for kids to grow up mastering all sorts of life skills. She's always quick to help the other kids out and loves sitting up on the bow with them or taking them below deck to play card games. They have so much fun together. I'm looking forward to all the summer adventures with these guys!

 Vi and all her adorable expressions.
