Captain Sails for the First Time
I mentioned our dog, Captain, in my last post. This Christmas was her first visit to Let It Be.
Initially, Cap was not a fan of being underway, especially if engines were involved. Mostly she hid under the table of the cockpit, closed her eyes and pretended to be somewhere else.
However, English Shepherd dogs are very adaptable and like to be involved in the decision making. So pretty soon Captain was up and about, making sure we were heading to a choice mooring ball:
In fact, by the end of her first two weeks of sailing, Captain was living up to her name and taking her turn at the helm:
And like any good captain, she took breaks, but stayed nearby in case we needed her help when she wasn’t at the helm:
I won’t be at all surprised if some day I find Cap has managed to make her own posts on this blog!
