Finally, Some Nice Weather

Gorgeous day with a light breeze, so seemed like the perfect time to take Rosa out for a spin. The breeze was a little too light so again, not as exciting a day out as it could have been. Tried Hinze Dam and it looks like it has a lot of potential.

Hardest part was getting away from shore as the wind direction was basically straight back into our faces and the little 'tac' we had to take to get out led straight into some weed.

So our departures were far from graceful (someone had to be neck deep in the water and then give a huge shove to get out, followed by a scramble to get back in the boat) but once we were out it was okay. The dam is much bigger than Lake Orr and very picturesque. We were basically stuck in the Eastern arm and didn't get near the dam at all. Would have been nice to transit along the dam (but outside of the exclusion zone) and into the Western arm... but not today.

We took some friends and their kids, who seemed to have a nice time. Well done the hero who rescued my lost hat!
