Landing the dinghy on the beach was exiting before, but now it is so easy that it is not an event anymore. We do it just about it every day now. It involves this: Orion gets out of the dinghy when it is a foot or so deep, takes us in a bit, and then we all get out, and haul the dinghy about seven feet or so up the beach. When we get the dinghy back in, we pull the bow around until it is pointing at the water, then we pull it down into the water, get in, wait for it to drift out, then Orion lowers the motor in the water and starts it. Then Daddy says, "Engage" Picard-style.
