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.

On July 14th, hubby and I left Rio Vista heading to Pittsburg Marina. It takes about 1 hour an 45 minutes. Some days it’s calm and some days not so much. This was a bumpy ride, but we’ve traveled in worse conditions.


Sorry for the beeping CO monitor, but we were closed up so we wouldn’t get wet. Our boat is sound and we were sitting together on the helm seat enjoying the ride.

For my buddy Cathy Kennedy author of Curious as a Cathy…this is what boating is like sometimes. We love every minute and are thankful we’re able to enjoy what we love.


This short video is our trip from Pittsburg Marina to Willow Berm Marina on Friday morning. What a difference a day makes.

What are you thankful for today?

    Thanks for taking us with you. I actually prefer choppy water, you know you are at sea!

    These videos are great, Sande! It’s so refreshing just to watch without having been there, and I love how pure the water looks and how it glistens. I’m glad you get to do this in person 🌻 So it’s an hour and 45 minutes to get there one way, then you do a return trip? It really does look gorgeous there. xx

    Mom loves a rough ride. When she flies, a lot of turbulence is her thing and it actually puts her to sleep. I think we would prefer a smooth ride. Enjoy your boating.

    I think I would be seasick if it was that choppy. I would enjoy a calm day though. Thanks for sharing. XO

    Thank you for taking us with you on your ride! I’ve been in some rough seas while on an Alaskan cruise and in smaller boats and prefer a calm smooth ride. Luckily, I’ve never gotten seasick! Happy Thursday!

    so glad to see you are able to get out and do what you love so much… Happy and Save sailing, make that mortoring…

    Sandee,

    It’s good to have a pastime you and hubby enjoy. I assume your boat has sleeping quarters, is that right? I can see the appeal of being out on the water but I’m not sure how well I’d do with a bumpy ride. 🙂 It looks like y’all had some nice weather for your trip. Thanks for the mention. Have a wonderful day, my dear!

    The noise sounded the same on the second day, but it was, as they say, smooth sailing. I am thankful I had the experience of my little pontoon for many years.
