Cocktails in the cockpit!

Okay... one last shot at sharing my summer fun.. Ha Ha!

Did I mention how much I love our cockpit? Well, one more photo of how we spend our time... outside all day and night until you crawl into the berth,.. Our Buddy Roger at the helm, couldn't tear him away, it's the Alaskan fisherman in his blood! Dan and I in our other home.. sailing Pachanga on our "Lady of the Lakes", Mother Superior!

Pirate Flags and Spinnakers!

Nothing more beautiful than a sailboat running downwind under a colorful spinnaker! It was a perfect day for it, actually sailed into anchor with it up.. and that NEVER happend without it collapsing.  Very cool.  AND how about those fun pirate flags? Our buddy who bought Drum Thunder gifted the skull flag to us before he left Lake Superior on his  sailing adventures, aaarrgghhhhhh... Fun or what?

Summer Fun!

So much fun to have friends aboard "Pachanga" I love our cockpit! Perfect for entertaining off the shore of Madeline Island. The shadow pic is in Julian Bay, one of my favorite beaches anywhere.

Apostle Islands

Gosh, I haven't blogged all summer!

I guess it just shows how busy we were. Spent lots of days on our sailboat "Pachanga".  Two weeks sailing in the Islands and then sailed up to the upper peninsula of Michigan. Sailed back to the Islands again at the end of August for 10 days. These pics are from one sunset off Stockton Island.  The colors were amazing.

Body painting practice!

No, I have NEVER attempted painting anyone's skin before.. YES, I did practice on my wonderful friend Jennifer! Different paints, brushes, colors,  sponges... next Monday another go at it.. getting ready for the DAY of Indulgence when myself and three other artists will pamper and paint a dozen women... then they will get professionally photographed as living work of art... keep you updated!

Interview with Minnesota Women's Press Magazine... done.

One of the publishers of Minnesota Women's Press Magazine, Norma Olson called on Friday morning to chat. I found out that Norma and I were born in the same year and are celebrating a true golden birthday of sorts this year. We have yet to meet in person, but am impressed by her caring and giving nature.

Colorfulgirl using Wordle.net

Okay, how cool is this? I was at a Central Minnesota Training and Development meeting today and learned about this cool site. I then found out about  prezi.com and will be making a very cool Colorfulgirl presention soon. WAY cooler than powerpoint.. really interactive. Can't wait to find some time to play with it.
