Sailing Takes Me Away

For years, my friend Mary has celebrated her birthday, by land, out at a Virginia winery.  This year, the party turned to sea. We went sailing in Annapolis! How Maryland of us, no?
Here's the birthday girl steering the boat...


You can see here, as Mary's dad, Fred T., helps raise the sails where Mary gets her nautical nature....

Ann played captain for a while, too....


Since I haven't truly gained my sea legs.....

I just took in the views!

The day was really amazing - perfect weather and perfect friends!

After our 2-hour cruise, we had dinner at The Rockfish....

where the seafood is really yummy.....


...as are the desserts!


Happy Birthday, Mary!



If you live near or are visiting Annapolis, you should totally make like Christopher Cross and go sailing, too! The company we used, Schooner Woodwind, provided the boat for the saililng scene from The Wedding Crashers.  It's so fun, reasonably priced and the crew is fantastic!

OH how fun!!! My little sis moved to MD a few years ago after she got married and I would love to celebrate her birthday one day on the open water during a trip north.

We're landlocked here in ATL so this looks like such a treat to me :) I'll have to start planning her bday now since it just passed in June! Thanks for a great idea.
