Cruise Out

Today finds us at Village West Yacht Club for an IOBG Delta District 19 function. I’ve got this meeting and one more and then I can hand over the reigns to the next president. It’s a good thing. It’s a really good thing.

Hubby and I boated over yesterday, along with a couple of other boats and enjoyed the afternoon and evening at the club. Today we’ll have a cocktail hour to include some yummy finger food, a short meeting and then a really great BBQ prepared by a couple of our members. When you say BBQ to this group there are only two names that come to mind. Ribs, chicken and hot links with homemade beans, potato salad a great selection of wonderful bread and tons of great company. It just doesn’t get any better than that.

After the festivities are over then it’s time for a glass of champagne while lounging on our boat chairs watching the boats come and go. Boating is a fabulous way to have a great time. May your day be as good as ours will be.

    Sounds like a marvelous way to spend your day. I will be watching a couple of soccer games then spending the afternoon at home with most of the kids. Nothing too exciting, but it makes me happy.

    • August 23, 2015 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm

      Boating rocks. We love it more than anything else.

      You always enjoy your kids. πŸ™‚

    I've cruised sailboats back in the day, and though I enjoyed the sail, if it wasn't for cocktail hour and chow after dropping anchor was clearly the best part.

    • August 23, 2015 4:31 pm at 4:31 pm

      We enjoy all of it Joe. The cruising and the cocktail hour and all the great food. There's always great food. πŸ™‚

    • August 23, 2015 4:32 pm at 4:32 pm

      We could have done that very easily. πŸ™‚

  10. August 22, 2015 7:15 am at 7:15 am

    Oh wow that does sound like a lovely day! Remind me again why I live in the desert????

    • August 23, 2015 4:32 pm at 4:32 pm

      The desert is good, but we're diehard boaters. πŸ™‚

  11. August 22, 2015 7:38 am at 7:38 am

  13. August 22, 2015 9:03 am at 9:03 am

    After cocktail hour, wine and champagne, I wouldn't be boating anywhere. Stay safe.

    • August 23, 2015 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm

      We never drink and drive. NEVER. We've watched others that have made this mistake. πŸ™‚

  14. August 22, 2015 9:28 am at 9:28 am

    Sound like a great bbq y-)

    • August 23, 2015 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm

  15. August 22, 2015 9:54 am at 9:54 am

    Why do I always get hungry when I come here? c-)

    • August 23, 2015 4:35 pm at 4:35 pm

      Well,if I'm talking about boating there is always food involved. πŸ™‚

  16. August 22, 2015 12:26 pm at 12:26 pm

    The most exciting event of the day was my visit to the local liquor store to stock up for the weekend!

    • August 23, 2015 4:35 pm at 4:35 pm

      We stock up for the weekends too. As it should be my friend. πŸ™‚

  17. August 22, 2015 12:30 pm at 12:30 pm

    sounds absolutely divine and yummy! Have a fun time!

    • August 23, 2015 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm

      It was divine and yummy. πŸ™‚

  18. August 22, 2015 3:14 pm at 3:14 pm

    Believe me. i'd have much preferred to be on a boat than have to cook a huge meal for Brother-in-Law, The Mouth.

    • August 23, 2015 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm

      You're always welcome on our boat. πŸ™‚

  19. August 22, 2015 4:23 pm at 4:23 pm

    Ohhh I wish I could join you and enjoy that delicious food (and the champagne, and OF COURSE the company!) I ADORE riding on boats, you are so lucky! I am thrilled for you that soon your schedule will ease up with no more meetings! Then you can relax! xoxo

    • August 23, 2015 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm

      I wish you could join us too. It's grand fun. πŸ™‚

  20. August 22, 2015 4:39 pm at 4:39 pm

    Sounds like a wonderful weekend! Enjoy your boat time!

    Smooches to Little Bit!

    • August 23, 2015 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm

      It's been a wonderful weekend. One more night and then we'll head home. πŸ™‚

  21. August 22, 2015 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm

    I'm glad to hear you're off having a wonderful time. πŸ™‚ Three cheers for happy boating. πŸ™‚

    • August 23, 2015 4:38 pm at 4:38 pm

      We always know how to have a great time. It's not that hard when you're doing something you love. πŸ™‚

  22. August 22, 2015 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm

    Yay, almost done and ready to retire from the helm. We have our AGM coming up and I was asked to be a committee chair for our yacht club. But since I don't have a boat currently, I can't even attend on the exec board, so there is no way I want to chair a committee and not be at the meeting that actually makes the decisions. Glad you are having fun, and enjoying a yummy BBQ.

    • August 23, 2015 4:39 pm at 4:39 pm

      I can understand that. You've got other things to deal with right now. And you're dealing with them very well. πŸ™‚

  23. August 23, 2015 5:06 am at 5:06 am

    Sounds like a perfect day to me. Enjoy!

    Scritches to LB. Big hugs times two, honey…

    • August 23, 2015 4:39 pm at 4:39 pm

      And it was Sandy, and it was. πŸ™‚

      Thanks it's been very happy. πŸ™‚

  25. August 24, 2015 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm

    Sounds like a very good time.

    • August 24, 2015 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm

      And we had a great time Binky. πŸ™‚

  26. December 10, 2015 10:52 am at 10:52 am

    Sounds like a great spread of food…
