Winter is Coming

Cold morning. My truck thermometer says -33. It might not be reliable. My face and hands just say cold. I'm sporting my drysuit.

Timore dark slidin'

 A few of us find a nice speed channel at the mouth of the marsh, mid tide, lined up perfectly with the wind. Who knew this was here?

What Once was Upwind

I usually kite here in NW or NNW. I didn't know if this place would work in NNE but it was O.K! A little gusty but the wind didn't seem blocked by Annisquam like rumors I had heard.

I did have to make certain adjustments. The upwind tack to Coffins was now downwind. The downwind run back now upwind. Very confusing. I had to flip my right brain to my left. I'm still feeling some lingering affects from that but I think I'll be alright.
