A few weekends ago my Dad decided to treat us to something really special. He chartered a sailboat and we went sailing on the Hudson! This was originally meant as a date for just my mom and dad but I'm so happy he decided to let us tag along. It was so much fun and different from what we normally do on weekends. Initially, I was worried about the weather for this time of year but it was perfect- not too hot, not too cold, and the sun was just right!
Our captain was nice, personable, and accommodating. he even let me "drive" us out of the marina! Check out my boat navigating skills. It took some getting used to as it doesn't drive exactly like car (duh! 'cause it's a boat!) but I didn't crash it! However, if you let my husband tell the story you would thought I sunk the Titanic.
I did get a little help from one of the deck hands :)
While we were out at
"Hey! I could do this every weekend! It was peaceful, relaxing, and stress free! I'm sure every trip wouldn't be like that but it's something I could get used to- especially with such perfect weather. I did get a glimpse of my dream boat- Yachts looks like mini cruise ships to me!
