LOOKIT what sailed by my house!

What a beautiful sight to come home too!
The A.J. Meerwald, a restored oyster schooner is docked locally this week.
She sailed by my house at lunchtime yesterday and Jaxon and I were on the beach to welcome her in.

IT GETS BETTER!  I was able to get tickets for Son and I to sail on her!

Son helped hoist the sail to get us underway.

We sailed past The Compound and waved to everyone.

Crew members were hanging over the edge.  YIKES!

Son steered the boat.  And didn't sink us!

He helped fold the flag.  Don't panic!  Its the A.J. Meerwold flag on the deck, NOT the stars and bars.

We watched the sunset on the way home.

We docked and came home. 
But what a WONDERFUL way to spend an evening.
There are not many other ways that can top this!


  1. sounds like a wonderful day...i would love to go sailing again!

  2. How nice! I bet son had tons of fun!

  3. How lucky you are to be able to see and do that!!!

  4. Oh wow!!! What an amazing experience!!!

  5. Makes me want to put my boat in the water very quickly!!!
