My apologies for an extended absence from The Railways! I had a real ‘big kid’ moment in life last week, returning from vacation to an overwhelming amount of work. The only thing to do? Focus and power through to the weekend. That being said, I am starting this week renewed with a lot of content to share.
Let’s start with my favorite part about Michigan, sailing. I spent one college summer in Chicago walking Lake Shore Drive, dreaming of sailing. The white sails dotting the horizon reeled me in. No pun intended! It wasn’t until our trip to Michigan that I finally fulfilled my dreams of sailing.
While we stayed in Traverse City, my Mountain Man’s birthday gift to me was a sunset sail. The evening of our sail it started raining. I almost lost my marbles. After 5 years of wishing to feel the wind on my face and water under my feet, were the weather gods really not going to grant me this one wish? It wasn’t until 15 minutes to launch that the sun came out, wind came up and we had the perfect romantic sail.
Really, it was perfect. I pulled up the main sail, sipped on wine and watched the sunset with my favorite person. A beautiful evening celebrating another year older!
We sailed with Two Brothers Sailing Adventures and it was a fabulous experience!
