Invest in experiences, not things

Sailing with Friends and Family

|

Over the past few weeks we’ve been really blessed to be able to sail with friends and family.

First Dave and Laurie came to visit. They’re friends from back in Everett. They used to cruise a Catalina 27 around Puget Sound every summer with 4 kids and two adults onboard! They’re awesome.

We effortlessly tacked up the bay. It's great having experienced crew aboard!

And we saw the Californian cruise by. Glad we saw it, because dave didn't see it dead ahead hidden behind the mast!

The next weekend Natalie’s Uncle Tim and Aunt Martha came to stay with us and cruise on the boat. We made a short trip up to Point Loma Marina.

After Tim and Martha left we had a few hours to ourselves before Eric and Amy came aboard again. Eric’s in the Navy too and he’s transferring to the east coast so we had to go out for a sunset cruise before they departed San Diego.

On our way towards downtown. We motored past the Maritime Museum's ships, enjoyed the sunset and headed back to the slip.
