Went sailing...................

A view of the sky, the mainsail, the boom and................a black object :P

I just had an epic field week this past week............I was out on the lake in the boat for a whole week..... every single day!!! Hahaha.... don't worry, I am not complaining.... I just want to make you all envious of me hehe (evil eh!?!).

Anywaz, was gonna have my first outdoor climbing experience in Tahoe last weekend, but that fail through instead I went sailing (not a bad alternative eh!). So last Sunday, I went sailing on BTE and DT's sail boat.........It was actually the first time this summer that I was on a boat but not WORKING!!! Amazing..............


Boat owners........DT and BTE


It was kind of a short notice so I didn't have enough time to make a spread of food...........I used up some of the peaches i bought for making a Brown butter Peach Tart for another event and some leftover puff pastry from 4th of July and made some Mini Peach and Goat Cheese Tart.


It was raining in the beginning so we had to hang out in the Van for a bit, which was kind of fun...almost like a car picnic :) Then, the sky started to clear up a little bit........and off we go............There wasn't much wind on our way out to Commons Beach...........so we basically powered out there, anchored, listened to some pretty so so music, drank some wine and relaxed!!!


On our way back, wind started blowing so we managed to sail a tiny bit...............but not for long , and the wind was gone (oh it rhymes!!!)


Melanie steering us home during our 5 mins of actual sailing!!! (and yes we made it home :P)


Heading home (if you look close enough, you will notice that we were motoring home hehe)

Non work related boating was really fun...........Hopefully will get to again soon..........well if you guys can give an earlier notice.........I promise I will make more food :)
