Petaluma Sail

by Kayla Trail

Hello! After coming down from the craziness of Nanowrimo and the holiday season, I thought I’d drag myself away from Downton Abbey and catch up on some blogging. For the new year, I’ve decided that I’m going to DO more things. Since graduating from college, I feel like I have been living life very passively. This year, I want to do more things, make more and be more active in the world in general.

So this year I am A) going to learn the ukulele B) Learn how to sew and C) blog as much as I can, even if the void of the internet has to put up with my drabble.

So, these are some photographs from last October. We took the Alma up to Petaluma for a weekend and we had a right good time. We had a few public sails, education sails and lots of shenanigans.

The Alma and the Grace Quan docked.

I missed the first part of the weekend but the day I arrived, we had a good ol’ BBQ with some wonderful tunes by this band whose name has escaped me. But believe me, they were great and I would highly recommend them if I could remember. This was followed up by a showing of “The African Queen” and then some fireside sing-alongs. I will be sure to bring the ukulele next time! 😀

Then we ended up in a bar that used to be a boat and the inside looked like this. Naturally, we all pointed our weapon of choice.
Waiting for the bridge so we can sail on.
After taking the public out on a lovely sail down the river, we took some time to swim/bathe. On the way back we ran into the Quan who we quickly boarded and raided of their bread, cheese and wine.

This was a wonderful trip and just one of the few perks of my job that I absolutely love. Until next time, hope you are all having a great day.
