Swiftsure Results

Well, Bifrost 3 came in second place. Pretty impressive. They sailed through last Saturday night–until about 3:30 in the morning. Steve wandered around the Victoria harbor like a homeless person–finally crashing in the grass–until my ferry came in. Which, of course, was late. Apparently, the race was fraught with excitement; high winds tilted the boat until the crew was dangling in the water, and they ripped the mainsail. You can tell that I know nothing about sailing with my descriptions–but here at Chez Smunshi, we’re pretty thrilled.

  1. Lovely pics of Harry. Dogs and cats are like darling sandbags sometimes.

    If you haven’t already, read Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson, published 1978 or so. I just finished it, and wondered where it has been all my life, how I’d missed reading it.

  2. I remember reading Housekeeping about 10 years ago, and how magical it was. And then she disappeared–finally reemerging with her latest novel, which I have not yet read. have you read it?

  3. Oh yes, and regarding the sandbags — they are EXPENSIVE sandbags to boot. Harry’s eye got infected again, more 75$ a bottle eyedrops, huge vet bill check up …Sigh. But we love them.
