Sunset Sails

Everyone could use more sunset sails in their lives
Usually by the time we get the car loaded, make the drive to the boat, load the dinghy and then get everything on the boat we're ready to anchor in our little spot off the State Park, make dinner and relax. On this particular day, after completing a few tasks on the To Do list, I wanted nothing more than that but Ron talked me into heading out for a quick sail. And I'm so glad he did! With clear skies and 12kts of wind it made for a leisurely sunset cruise...and lots of pictures. So here's a little break from our mad run on project posts, just to show you that we still do manage to squeeze in sails!

    1. Isn't that the truth?!? Whether it's the wind, the weather or just getting to the boat, there's never enough sailing.

  2. Great pics of your romantic sunset sail! Thanks also for posting a comment on our "newish" blog (moorebetterworld.blogspot.com). Lexie looks so regal on the boat. How does she take to the saltwater, peeing on the boat, moving from sailboat to dinghy and back again?! I enjoyed your post about your fav products/makeup while sailing :)

    1. Hi there! Looking forward to following you guys...very exciting!

      Lexie has only been in/around fresh water, it'll be interesting to see how she reacts to saltwater. We haven't gotten around to getting her to pee on the boat, we need to, we just haven't done it yet! She only weighs 50lbs so we just lift her in and out of the dinghy. We usually pick her up off the boat while we're standing in the dinghy, once we pick her up we immediately sit down in the dinghy...that way no one falls in :) Getting from the dinghy to the boat is easiest for me if I put her front legs on the side of the boat and lift her back legs up. That might be a little trickier with a larger dog like you have however. You'll get it, just try different ways and see what works best. Cheers!
