I meant to post these photos of one of our adventures in Wenatchee a while back...but forgot.
We went up to Lake Chelan one morning and went berry picking. (Yes, one of my all-time favorite things to do!) Lake Chelan is absolutely gorgeous and I hope the next time I visit we can spend some more time up there. It was the perfect picking weather, the perfect picking spot, and the perfect picking people! I loved that Gillian and Isabella would run around eating berries and smiling.
My good friend Sarah is full of fun adventures. Recently she became friends with a lovely family (with two children, ages 7 & 4) who live on and operate the Liberty Schooner in the New York Harbor. The last time they invited her to come out on a chartered ride she asked if she could bring me along. I was completely thrilled and honored! Sarah and I helped them prepare and serve food for the passengers. We even learned one bit of pulling the boat back into the pier (and actually got to do it...pulling ropes, yelling commands, etc.) I loved getting to know the family and the crew. All amazing people!
The whole evening was fabulous. There was something magical and harmonious about being on a beautiful sailboat gliding around the harbor as the sun set on the city.
