HOT GIRLS YES, BEACHES NO, PUMPKINS NO, BAR HARBOR YES, FOUR MASTED SCHOONER YES.

PUMPKIN AND BEACH POSTS LATER THIS MONTH PLUS MORE OF THE FAIRFIELD COUNTY FAIR IN LANCASTER OHIO.

Had to go to the archives for pictures of the SCHOONER MARGARET TODD for this weeks SKY WATCH FRIDAY (ENJOY)

SKIES ARE CLOUDY IN LANCASTER, OHIO

The Afternoon Sail at 2:00 p.m. is generally a livelier, more exhilarating sail among the islands of Frenchman Bay, because of the stronger afternoon sea breezes. Relax, have a picnic or help us hoist the sails!

For a little history of THE SCHOONER MARGARET TODD just click.

The women raising the sails. That is my wife Linda (A VERY HOT WOMAN) on the left. She actually sprained her back doing this chore.

“The Margaret Todd carries nine sails on her four masts. The large sails are called, from front to back, the foresail, mainsail, mizzensail, and spankersail. (These sails are named after the mast which carries it). The five smaller sails are the jib topsail, inner and outer jibs, staysail and the spanker topsail.”

Joe: Did not like the snow background on the one photo. It may be realm too soon. A schooner with a family name, how neat.

Nice sky shots and I love the Scooner...has been many years now since I was out on a Three Masted Scooner out of Mystic Conn....loved sailing on her..on my trips up to Mystic from the Hamptons on Long Island when I lived there....alas..I am in the Mountains of NC now and do miss the ocean...but enjoy the mountains also.
