we're hooked

Friday, July 12, 2013

Pun totally intended.  Our summer has been wonderful so far, instead of planning a trip we decided to take the plunge and buy a boat. {Again with the pun, I just can't help it!} Chris and I have deemed this decision as one of the best yet!  We are in love, hooked if you will.
Red solo cup in hand, sunbathing at the bow, and the sweet southern sounds of Wagon Wheel coming from the radio....This moment, my favorite of the summer so far, made my little southern heart melt.
 Boat hair and tropical drinks, my Captain and I are developing some rockin tans. We are also loving being able to dock up to local restaurants for a late lunch or to have a drink.
 Out in the bay!  To see the lighthouses, watch pods of dolphins, or do some fishin'!  We also watched the 4th of July fireworks from the bay; it was amazing to say the least.  The ride out can be a little bumpy, but my cowboy loves it, and I'm never one to say no to an adventure....
 oh, and the sunsets, did I mention they are breathtaking.  Coming in after a long tiring day on the boat, your skin burns, your hair is a hot mess and you know you have boat cleaning duty when you get back; but this view alone makes all of that worth it....so so worth it.
And occasionally I get to drive!  Hold onto your hats friends....

We're still trying to figure out a name for her, so if you have any ideas we are all ears for suggestions!  And my clothes purchases lately have been deemed only necessary if it can be worn on the boat.  Anything with an anchor on it is a must [duh].  We always have a cooler on hand and towels at the ready, we are boat
lovers this summer, learning the ropes and swimming in the fun! {puns, all of them, obnoxiously intended}

hopefully, if the rain ceases we will be out on the boat this weekend. Let me know if you want to go for a ride!  I truly think the best part of having the boat is sharing this awesome experience will all of our friends....
