portage lakeUnlike some winter junkies who actually claim to love the balance a nice summer brings I really can’t stand the season and would be totally content to sleep for the next 4 months if I was able to get away with it.  That said, this summer has been an improvement by my unplanned purchase of a mid 80’s Mistral Maui Windsurfer.  It’s been nice learning something new, where progress seems to come about in day, rather then season, long increments.  Progress has been slowed by light winds but is moving along, hopefully I’ll be out in the inlet sooner rather then later.
