It was our pleasure to host the Dutchman, Amina, Carla (Cedric's mom), Thijn and Thieme for an afternoon sail on a beautiful SoCal day. They're here on vacation from Amsterdam. The sea lions and dolphins did not disappoint and the weather was near perfect. Thijn and Thieme (pronounced Tine and Teema) had a blast as did the rest of the crew.

We always enjoy visiting the Granite State and the Admiral's family and this trip was no exception. Most of our time was spent on Bear Island in Lake Winnipausakee. The only way on or off the roadless island is by water. If you saw "On Golden Pond" with Henry Fonda, you'll have an accurate idea of the beauty of this place. In fact, the movie was filmed on a neighboring lake.

This was the view as we first approached the dock upon our arrival. The cabin is tucked away in the trees.

This sunset set the tone on our first night.
