sailing

ahoy! friends.. I hope you all had a splendid weekend..I did something i have never done this weekend ...went sailing on the bay! it probably was the prettiest day ever on the most beautiful boat..i saw things about this part of the world i live in that i have never seen before..it was chilly at parts but super sunny and really amazing being out on that salt water! it was a learning experience too..i learned that they aren't called "ropes" they are called "lines" and we did things like 'tack' where the boat is literally sideways and we turn around..it was so fun!

speaking of sailing..i found these cute deck shoes..i love how they are preppy without being perfect..they have that worn in look..now i need to decide between the metallic ones or the navy ones..found here
don't cha love?

There is something so serene and calm about floating along the top of the water. So glad you had fun!

You're so funny! It's "tacking' when you turn between starboard and port! You want to be invited back, no?!! Awaiting my new Rikshaw top...can't wait!

too funny, cause I was JUST talking about these last night in navy.
I think I'm loving the metallic though.
