Sailing on the Ardelle

ardelle sail with down home swing

Took Mom for a sail on Ardelle last Thursday.  It was a beautiful evening and a great way to spend two hours out on the harbor.  There was a marvelous four piece band playing, called Down Home Swing, who entertained us the whole trip, that is when Harold wasn’t entertaining us with his feeding of the demanding visiting gulls.

I visited Harold’s boat yard in Essex and watched as Ardelle was being built, wrote about her back in 2011, and went aboard when Ardelle visited one of our Mug Ups on Madfish Wharf, but had never yet been on board to sail with her.  I’m so glad I finally did and got to take my mother, who enjoyed it immensely.
