I am very lucky to have my friends own a sailboat, and be able to go on adventures with them. The unlucky thing for me is that the Bay scares the shit out of me. Makes no sense, I come from a family of sailors... why am I so scared of sailing. It's the lean of the boat and the coldness of the bay... I think if it was warm I wouldn't be so afraid of the water, but the bay is freezing all year 'round and it scares me.
So my boyfriend informed me the best time to go sailing is in the winter since the wind is so light. Saturday we all packed up and sailed to Angel Island, a state park by Tiberon. It is true the wind is much lighter during the winter but I still eeeked, winced, and whined when we leaned far and tacked. But I did it! I didn't freak out, I just looked at the horizon and how beautiful it all was. And I'm so happy I went, I hadn't yet been to Angel Island and it truly is kinda Jurassic Park-esque. We got there around dusk which is the most beautiful time of day and walked around the island at night exploring all the abandoned buildings before heading back to the east bay under the stars. We had to motor most of the way back cause there was no wind and the water was like glass.
It was an amazing day/evening and wanted to share it with you. The boys of course go sailing all the time, but I usually go do my own thing and not tag along as much anymore cause I don't want to be a buzz kill. But maybe I need to try to go at least once a month... Also here are a couple videos I took with the new app Vine :) you can follow me on that under Moyer the Destroyer
The next day on sunday we then all headed into the city for the Superbowl, and although the 49ers didn't win it was a good game :)
