Sailing into the Sunset .... and back again

It's best to hum the theme song to "Gilligan's Island" while you are reading this post. Shanley and Brady offered to take their boat, Nepenthe out for a sunset cruise while Melanie and Ray were here. We had lots and lots of food, lots and lots of drinks, and we set out to see the sunset.

Believe it or not, Brady was in charge of our fates that night

Mel and Ray set in for their "three hour tour"

There was a bit of a snafu after we got back. The "Bindi Jade" was anchored out, and had to be returned to be docked next to the Nepenthe. Erin went out and captained the Bindi Jade back to shore. You can see here that she is throwing the line in to Shanley, who is on the Nepenthe.

Erin throws in the other line....

Now, Ana and Shanley both have a line.....

Closer, closer...

Uh oh, try again Erin, Shanley and Ana each have the end of the same line!!!

The rising moon and the setting doesn't get much better than this

What we came for

Erin tries again

Pull Ray, pull!!!

It was a great three hour tour, with lots of laughs, good friends, good food, sea air, and a wonderful do you get better than that?
