Sailing Under the Sun

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend! Jacob and I spent the entire weekend on Nantucket, and it was even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. From the moment we stepped off the ferry, we were smitten with the charm of the island.

With the both of us being in love with boating, we knew we had to spend some time out on the water during our trip. I booked us a sailing excursion earlier in August, and we were not disappointed! It was both mine and Jake’s first time on a sailboat, and I have to be honest, I was pretty nervous! That’s mainly because all I could think about while we were making our way away from the docks was that movie, Adrift, with Shailene Woodley. Needless to say, we didn’t hit any kind of weather like the weather in that movie. It was the absolute perfect day!

Captain Jim, our sailing guide, was so helpful. He explained how to raise and lower the sails and showed me where I could sit so that I wouldn’t fall off as we would turn (this was necessary because I was scared). Overall though, we had the best time. It was mine and Jacob’s favorite part of the trip! Next time we visit Nantucket, we definitely plan to go sailing again!
