A difficult day, so sheer joy to head off to sea for the first time this year in the old and battered boat. The Yamaha outboard started on the third pull, and then it was off into an absolutely stunning, calm evening. Martha perched in the bow, we headed off on the flood tide and, as an afterhtought, threw a mackerel flee over the side. Success! One mackerel first time, four the next. The sense of satisfaction was overwhelming. Breakfast!
