What to wear on a boat ride?
Since I started this blog at end of last year, I have been super busy. As you know I am a teacher so I have my summer off. But it seemed I was even more busy because there are always so many things I can do to improve my blog and try to get more traffic. Do you see a patten here? I am a workaholic and I am not happy with it! So I promised myself that at least for the month of August I would really have my summer break!
Well, it’s fair to say that I am getting better. But according to my husband I still have a long way to go. 😉 He does consider himself to be somewhat of an expert on chillaxing and I guess he is right; because every week I still have a few fulltime 8 hour days working on my blog. But at least we went on a couple long weekend/short vacations this month.
This last weekend we spent a wonderful day on a friend’s boat. We have been invited for many years but somehow just never made it. I’ve always been slightly scared of boats too, which is why I like to make sure I’m fully aware of my maritime law options whenever I go on a boat. Before we even went on this little adventure, I have always thought about how amazing it would be to have a boat of my own. That is the dream! I’ve become so obsessed with the idea that I’ve even gone as far to look into something like lake winnipesaukee boat sales, to check out some boats. There’s no harm in looking, as I hope one day I could actually have one to call my own. But for now, we had my friend’s boat, which was good enough. The night before our lake date I started thinking about what to wear on the boat. I have been on a few cruise ships but never been on a private yacht. My original plan was a striped tee with white shorts. But at the last second I changed my mind and settled on this outfit. Who can resist a flowy white top for a summer boat ride?
It happened to be a fantastic day to be out on the water. The sun was shining, the temperature was just right and the lake was calm. We had great company, tasty food and stayed well hydrated! You can’t be too careful with that and we’re all about staying healthy! 😉
Roxie is the name of our friend’s new dog. She is such a cutie and we quickly became best buds.
If you follow me on Instagram you already saw this cute photo below. If you aren’t following me, what are you waiting for? You already know I’m pretty awesome but then you’d be able to know me more as a person. 😉 Anyway, that fashionable dog bag is just Roxie’s life jacket. When we were shooting photos she ran out of the boat. I had to catch her before she wandered away.

After a few hours boat ride, we stopped at an island beverage stand to freshen up. 😉
After a short break we headed back out on the lake again to watch the sunset. It was the most peaceful and beautiful sunset I have ever seen.
It is pretty cool that we could just dock our boat at a waterfront restaurant and enjoy our dinner. And timing was everything. There just happened to be a Jamaican band playing Reggae music into the night. A short boat ride back to our home marina and then we thanked our Captain and First Mate friends, said goodnight to Roxie and drove home. What an AWESOME summer Saturday! Maybe I could get used to the relaxing life!
