Take her to sea, Mr. Murdoch...

Luke and his friends go sailing every once in a while and I have always wanted to go, but never had the chance...until last weekend!!! We took Chip's vessel, Thug Life out for a sail out of the Ventura harbor. Thinking it would be wise to avoid a potential sea sickness episode, I popped half a dramamine before we set sail. Even though it was my first experience on a sail boat, Chip had me steer the boat out of the harbor while the boys set up the sails. (completely nerve wracking when there are innocent kayaking bystanders in the same waters as a newbie sailor!) I didn't get sick at all and loved being on the water. However, the dramamine made me so drowsy that I zonked out right on the ship! Luckily, I was awoken when we passed a buoy being occupied by a family of barking seals. (in case you are wondering, Luke will not allow me to keep a pet seal in our bath tub...I asked.)

All in all, it was a fabulous day with great weather, company and scrumptious snacks. I'm thinking one day Luke and I should invest in a sail boat and go on some sailing adventures...

  1. Oh man Thug Life, what a great sail we had. Whitney did a great job getting us out of the harbor. Good times!!
