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.

I’m thankful that hubby and I took a cruise by ourselves last month. Organized cruises aren’t fun for us anymore. We decided to have some fun by ourselves. It exceeded our expectations and then some.

Our first stop was Bridge Marina Yacht Club. We ran into many folks that we already knew and had a great evening of fellowship and a fabulous meal.

Our second stop was Pittsburg Municipal. We got gas and then tied up for the night. There was a music festival in the parking lot and the music was awesome. We had dinner with a dear friend at La Veranda. It couldn’t have been a better day.

Our next stop was Delta Marina Yacht Harbor. We met with our friends and treated them to dinner at the Point Restaurant for his 80th birthday. It was a wonderful evening and visit.

My biggest thankful was getting under a bridge that was not operational. We checked low tide for the day we headed home and low tide at the bridge was 8:08 am. We were there at 8:08 am and got under the bridge with room to spare. Saved us about three hours in travel time.

What are you thankful for today?

    That sounds like a wonderful time. So much nicer when you can do what you want when you want instead of following a schedule and waiting for other people.

      We didn’t have a schedule and that’s what made this most enjoyable. We took turns driving the boat and just enjoyed our cruise. 🙂

    Mom thinks branching out and following your own agenda is almost always better than traveling in a herd. That’s awesome you had such a good time, and met up with friends too!

    • Sandee says:

      It is and we had a great time. The music festival was wonderful. Upscale bands and they weren’t so loud you couldn’t think. Such fun and some really great music. 🙂

    • Sandee says:

      Hubby and I have come to the conclusion that it’s just the two of us. We are what counts. I am thankful for air conditioning here too. We’ve had a hot summer. 🙂

    • Sandee says:

      We so enjoy being together and when we’re on a cruise it’s even more enjoyable. It’s our passion. You be well too, Darla. 🙂

    • Sandee says:

      It couldn’t have turned out better. Well perhaps a bit cooler would have been nice, but outside of that it was perfect. 🙂

    That sounds like a great cruise. Nice you still got to see friends even though your cruised alone. Have a great day! XO

    • Sandee says:

      There are always friends along the way. The nice thing about this cruise is we aren’t all rafted up together. It’s just to much for us anymore. You have a great day too, Ellen. 🙂

    Nice….crusing on top of the way is cool. I love water, I love to get in it, however, I have the most respectful fear of it. No horsing around in it with me. I love boating and I love going on a big ship cruise but….I know my limits with water. So glad you had a great time. Have a good day.

    I can understand that being part of an organized group would soon lose appeal. I have learned to avoid tour groups. Your voyage sounds perfect with just the two of you.

    • Sandee says:

      It has lost it’s appeal and when there are people you just don’t want to be around in the mix (drama queens – male and female) and then there is the toxic folks. If I don’t see them again it will be a week to soon. 🙂

  6. Holly G. says:

    Wow Sandee, that sounds wonderful! I am thankful you and the hubby got to spend some quality time together. Isn’t that way more fun than an ‘organized cruise’ anyway? 🙂

    I am thankful that there are still people out there who look to support other people in achieving their dreams and goals. You are one of them. To me, we need to bring back caring in this world. More compassion, more empathy and more concern for our fellow people. We need each other more than we realize. God created each of us with a purpose and a plan. We are better together.

    oops! I’ll get off my soapbox now. 😛 Lots of love heading your way Sandee. Wishing you a blessed rest of the week ♥

    • Sandee says:

      And you’re one of those people that support others. Good for you because you’re one of them too. Yes we are better together. 🙂

    • Sandee says:

      Well there is that. If we would have had to go back the way we came it would have taken us an extra three hours. We were happy to get under that bridge. 🙂

  7. Paul Pietrangelo says:

    A cruise is a cruise. My type of cruise or your cruise, they are all for enjoyment. I glad that you were got under that bridge and that you and your hubby enjoyed your cruise. See ya Sandee.

    Cruisin Paul

    • Sandee says:

      Oh they won’t like that will they. They will be giving the peeps the cold shoulder for a bit. Not that you care about that, Kismet. 🙂

    Hi Sandee, just the two of you cruising around in your boat sounds so nice. Being able to pick and choose what you do and where you stop sounds a dream and meeting up with friends along the way? What could be better?

    Right now I am thankful that there are only a few more weeks of the tourist season left. It’s been a long and hot summer!

    • Sandee says:

      Yes, there is great freedom in that. We get along well so being on a boat for days doesn’t bother us one bit. Yes, it’s been a lot hot summer. 🙂

  9. Gilly says:

    ooh how lovely! Sounds idyllic. I can see why you would be thankful for that. I’m thankful for so many things I don’t know what to say…it sounds really sugary, but I am so thankful that my husband is the kind of man he is.

    • Sandee says:

      We love our boat and we love to cruise on our boat. It’s a wonderful venue for us. I’m thankful for my wonderful husband too, Gilly. We’re lucky gals for sure. 🙂

  10. Memories of Eric and Flynn says:

    I am glad you had such a lovely cruise. Going on your own means you can go where you want when you want and don’t have to make group decisions, or worse still, not having your ideas listened to.
    We cruise on the big ships but always do our own thing when onboard. We get a cabin with a bigger balcony and love to sit out in the evening with a bottle of wine (or gin!) and watch the waves go past.
