Sailing, and Noticing the Environment

This month I’ve started learning how to sail. I love how much it makes me notice the environment. I live in a big city, but there is a lake in the middle where I go sailing. It is nice to have a big area with no buildings. It’s the best to be on the water and to see the hills and buildings and people on all sides.

When I’m sailing, I need to find the wind and notice which direction it is coming from. (I don’t normally notice the wind, except to notice that it is cold!) I like having to pay attention to where the wind is coming from and using it to move my sailboat from one place to another.

Also, there are lots of really great birds and turtles around the lake. I like it when all the birds take off from the water all at once.
