you may have wonder what kept me faaar away from blogging...

well, the summer has arrived and I can't bare to spend my evenings at home.

With such a hot and sultry weather AND the fact that I live close to 7 lakes (yes, seven!), guess what I have been doing on my evenings in the past two weeks?

SAILING!





At the beginning of Spring I crushed with my dingy on a quay due to the strong wind.

It took me ages to fix the dingy as it rain quite a lot overall all Spring.









here it's me (yes, it's me!!), painting, scrubbing and amending the fiberglass body of the dingy.

As I am suffering from a 'housewife-syndrome', I did it all the cleaning and polishing until the dingy was perfectly neat and tidy.




and then here I am sailing on the Lake Maggiore!

refreshing, exciting, funny and healthy (it's a good excercise!).

Just in case you wonder, the dingy is only for two, around 4.5 meters and I keep it at the Sailing club.
