On Thursday we had a chance encounter with our dock neighbor on an otherwise virtually empty Galveston Bay. During our brief convergence, I took this pic.

Thanks much. Frankly, I don't know who was faster, since we converged from different places. Besides, I had a had a reef in my main - a reef that was no longer needed but I was too lazy to shake out ; later, as the wind dropped further, I capitulated and took out the reef.

After that first, brief squal in the marina, we had a great three days with remarkably low humidity.
