It was Labor Day when we last took our son’s Cape Dory 14 out for a sail. James had a day off last Sunday, so he invited me along for another sail at Kaw Lake. This was his first trip out with the boat since the work was done on it, and I was anxious to see how he liked it, and how the new brailing line worked.

tucked under his arm.

lake level is dropped each fall so they can seed the exposed
shoreline with grasses for the migratory birds.
