How Did You Spend Your 4th of July?

 We are aboard Gypsy Rose on this hot 4th of July morning.
  She sails beautifully.

Connie and I are loving it. 
She was taking pictures on launch day and did not get in much sailing time 
but today we will be out for several hours.

The temps today will hit 90 degrees Fahrenheit.  
That's why we dressed in light colors to beat the heat.

 Here is Connie, my smiling beauty of a wife with her sailing gloves on.  
39 years together and we are still best friends

Gypsy Rose is a very unique and vintage looking boat 
 we can already see that she will attract attention 
wherever we sail her. 

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm............Pirate Island??

A board sailor out enjoying the wind and waves.

Lots of flags out today. 
I for one love the USA!

Back in the slip and the weary but happy sailors head for home,
 only 10 minutes away.

She's a little beauty.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  
I look forward to reading your comments 
and hope you have happy times ahead.

Happy sailing everyone!
Steve and Connie.
