Simple Pleasures

Ryuishiro, Kanako, Juna and Carlos come to stay. We have the best fun.


Ryuishiro loves the boat.

She steers unassisted all across Nagahama bay.




Isn’t it great when kids love sailing.


Matsuda sensei is the best, er in so many ways.


The buckets contain baby turtles.

    Your boat reminds me of “Swallow” from “Swallows and Amazons” with that red sail. Particularly if kids were using it 🙂

    Neil, The photos in this post are delightful. The smiles on all the faces reflect the joy of simple sailing with friends and family. I look forward to having my 3 year old grandson join me in my Scaffie for some similar fun. Your comment: “Children make everything more fun is certainly true.”
