Thankful Thursday

It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian of Brian’s Home. He wants us to post what we’re thankful for. I think it’s a good thing to do each week. Focus on the positive things in our lives.

Make sure you link up to the Blog Hop at Brian’s Home and get the code to put on your blog. Then visit all the participants.

Last weekend hubby and I had a yacht club function in Rio Vista, California at Delta Marina Yacht Harbor. We exited our slip Thursday morning and made our way to Rio Vista. It’s a grueling 1.5 hours to get there. We got docked and hooked up with the commodore and her husband and enjoyed the afternoon on their boat. Then it started raining so we moved to our boat (a bit more room), and enjoyed more of the afternoon and a great dinner.

Friday brings many boats to the dock. That evening everyone went to The Point Restaurant for dinner. There might have been some alcohol being consumed on our boat after dinner.Β  It’s a noisy and fun evening.

Saturday is the day the Coast Guard Auxiliary inspect our boats. Yes we passed and have a nice 2018 sticker on our boat that says our boat in in compliance with all equipment and safety regulations.

Next there are Hors d’oeuvres and a themed game or contest. This trip it was doggy costumes. The commodores dog won first place. Next is dinner and we had tons of food. We always do. After clean up and when it gets dark it’s movie night. Complete with popcorn and candy. A huge hit.

Sunday morning we head back to our marinas. We are tired, but it was a great time. The pictures below were taken by one of our club members (Jo T.) on our way back from our weekend.
The Three Mile Slough Bridge had to be opened so our five boats could leave the Sacramento River and enter Three Mile Slough.

This is our boat (Anewatee) and we’re right in front of the boat taking the pictures (Sporting Wood).

At the bottom of this photograph you can see our club burgee on the vessel Sporting Wood. Next is Anewatee, then Indolence, then Midlife Woody and in the lead is Our Destination. All of these boats are in two different marinas very close to each other.

I’m so very thankful that we are still healthy enough to enjoy this wonderful venue.

What are you thankful for today?

      You’ve seen our boat before when we were doing the remodel. It looks so small there, but it’s really a good sized boat. You have a fantastic day too, Marg. Scritches to all your babies. πŸ™‚

    I’m thankful for the beautiful, blue skies yesterday. It was super windy but otherwise a gorgeous day. I’m thankful for being at a place, where we do not need to struggle from pay check to pay check anymore. It’s nice being able to put aside a little each time for emergencies. That’s something we couldn’t do for years. Thanks for visiting!

    Yes indeed, as we age and see friends struggle with health issues we become very thankful for the health that we have and medical science for the knowledge to manage some of the issues that plague us. Enjoy the cruise season. Have a blessed week-end.

      This is fresh water here. You have to go to Benicia to find the brackish water. Then to the bay where it is saltwater. I’d would love to have you join us. xoxo πŸ™‚

      I could do without winter. The other three seasons are fine. This year winter has hung on for a very long time. Looks like most of the U.S. has had a tough winter. πŸ™‚

    I can tell that you have lots and lots of blessings in your life. What a fun time you had!

    I had to laugh that I posted about the desert and you posted about boating (opposites)! I am always so thankful when we can be camping someplace beautiful in either the desert or the mountains!

      The boat is self contained. There is a galley where we cook our meals. There is a head with a shower where we can do our business and stay clean. There is a wonderful bed for us to sleep. We have spent up to two weeks on our boat as we’ve traveled here and there. It’s wonderful. πŸ™‚
