Let's go sailing!
Took some time to give our diva Liberty some nail polish. Six coats over six days, with sanding in between each coat. Can’t say it was easy, but it was satisfying!
We don't post enough pictures of our time on the water, mainly because Captain Phil is to busy catching the wind and watching out for other boaters... His first mate (aka the wife, me), went out with a crew yesterday and we had a blast. I can still feel the sun and sea spray and everyone smiling, like, the entire time...
Yep, even Captain Philip watches movies, when he's not sailing or watching reality fishing shows that take place in cold climates. One of the most heartbreaking scenes for him is Truman sailing through the storm that, while symbolizing the struggle to break out of whatever is keeping you boxed in, wrecks a beautiful sailboat. Can I say that no Friendship sloops were harmed in the making of this movie? No, I cannot.
Being that this is Hollywood at work, and there are no sudden killer storms that whoop up in San Diego Bay, rest assure that sailing with us will be the exact opposite of sailing with Truman:)
Feel free to add to the list!
We received a National Geographic subscription for Christmas (love it!) and I checked out their website- found cool educational activities for kids... this one’s about crossing the Atlantic:
We are constantly getting asked (we meaning Captain Phil) are restaurant recommendations. So, I put a shout out to our local friends and they delivered - I didn't even have to leave a tip!
I'll post a different section from the list every couple of days (there are 8, or should I say...ate?)
1. Hodad’s (Ocean Beach, Downtown)
2. Rocky’s Crown Pub (Pacific Beach)
3. Five Guys (Pacific Beach, Point Loma, Hillcrest)
4. Starlite (Little Italy)
5. Shake Shack (Mission Valley)
There we were, sailing along, heading peacefully out to the open ocean, when... Holy Smokes, a sunken sailboat, right off of our very own Point Loma! Not much is known, except that it obviously sank very recently and is a schooner...
Let us know if you know anything!
We had such a lovely time with Shannon and her family. What a great birthday gift for her 14 year-old daughter! I wish my iphone could take better pictures, but here's one boat that came out pretty well...? I like it because it expressed the pirate theme of the parade very well:)
Only 1 private charter left for December 17!
We have one charter left for this spectacular holiday event! The Parade of Lights is on 2 nights: Dec 10 and 17 starting at 5:00. December 10 is booked, but there is time (for now) to book for a private holiday event. Individual tickets are currently available as well, but they won't last long!
Skip the crowds and experience this beautiful boat parade on Liberty as we cruise alongside the parade sipping hot chocolate and spiked eggnog (among other drinks and snacks;)
