     Veterans Day
 a Day to remember

 Today I want to thank all of our veterans for their service, and know that though we don't always show it we appreciate the service that you have done for your country.

 I spent the day walking Mika through Camp Wah-Tut- Ca, the Boy Scout Camp that I worked at as a teenager. I decided to go there for a few reasons, the first being that my Element is still in the shop, now with a blown head gasket, and Mika's leash is in that car. I figured that no one would be at the camp and we could safely walk through away from any hunters as well. The second reason, is that this the right place for me to reflect on my own life since I spent much time there as a teenager. Most of us that have gone to camp there, or have worked there can attest was like being in heaven on earth. What a special place. It was also the last vestige of youth for those who would end up serving their country during times of war.

 On this Veterans Day Camp Wah-Tut-Ca has special meaning to me. Since World War 2, including the Vietnam war and I am sure, the gulf wars as well. Young men have left summer camp, and went from there, or shortly after to fight for their country, some never to return.

 Although I don't remember the names I do remember the faces that left camp for Vietnam, and never returned. So young we put our boys in harms way.

  I will remember on this Veterans Day the scarifies that not only these boys have made of life and limb, but also the sacrifices that their families have made as well. I hope that we evolve in a way that we don't have to send our boys off to fight wars in the future.


 I brought the SPOT with me and marked the entrance, but for some reason when I finally arrived back at the gate it was turned off.

 You can see where I started and still work your way through the camp, however my path will not show. I will try again later in the week and give notice on my Facebook page


  The holiday season is right around the corner and a sailing gift certificate will make a great gift for any occasion. I will be offering coupons for individual lessons, package sailing lessons, as well as my favorite The Hands on Family Sailing Lesson. These are all great ways to get out sailing without the expense of owning a boat.

 Although I can use a little rest it is hard to believe that next year 2014 will be our tenth season running Captain Ed's Sailing. Quite a few folks have come out sailing with me either as a lesson, a Hands on Sailing Charter, a Sunset cruise, (remind me next year to do more of those), or a boat delivery. I am going to celebrate by spending some time on the Bella Donna this winter making sure that she is ready for this next coming season.


  I am  keeping the link to Larry Jackson, and Penni Laynes video up for a while for those who have missed it.


Check out the SPOT to see our trips. The best way to follow and interact with us on spot is to follow us on Facebook 


  I want to again thank everyone for their support of Captain Ed's Sailing if it is even just through reading my news letters.
