Ahh winter...

For sure, winter is a period of adjustment, and a period of relaxation.

The transition into winter is definitely a challenging time - hanging up the water toys for the ice tools and skates. For a few months, its a challenge to get into the different forms of substandard activities. On the other hand, the stress levels drop massively.

And why? All of a sudden, the anxiety of chasing the sporadic wind forcasts, rescheduling this and that, and racing home to rack up has all of a sudden vanished. The water is rock hard, the snow has fallen and one must give into the white stuff, and re-focus on the more important things.

No doubt it's a time design by mother nature to rack up the brownie points with the wife for stockpiling next summers day passes.

Hatteras trip planned

Stoked that the family and I are heading down to the Outer Banks in late April for a couple of weeks! I've got my fingers crossed that we score a solid combo of nice weather with lighter winds for puttering with the boys, and some nasty fronts pushing in the heavy winds and swell. We shall see!
