What a contrast of endeavors a morning on the Sound presents!
The last weekend day of duck hunting this season brought the boats out with a fever. Hot was fixed with a cold east wind, turning SE. No ducks. As the last of them packed it in just after lunchtime here sails a Bluebird of a Boat.
A boat under sail threading the empty duck blinds! Perhaps a different picture if they were full! The warm January weather must have been too much temptation for this sailor. I thank him for a little gift of surprise, a Bluebird of a Boat on a January day.
