This summer was the first in five or six years that hasn't taken place mostly on, in, or around water. It has been the first in as long that I haven't spent in temperatures well above 100 degrees. It has been the first summer in six years that I have had to wear more than a pair of shorts and the occasional pair of flip flops/chaco's. The first summer where a majority of my time was spent fully clothed and indoors.....on land.
This being the case you can imagine my craving for the water, in fact, I believe I have written about it on here a few times. I have decided that my next water education adventure will be to take on the task of learning to sail. I have been researching schools around the Bay Area and have narrowed it down to just a couple. I am hoping that I can begin this adventure before winter settles in. I hear the sea is actually quite pleasant and forgiving this time of year.
I am also lucky enough to work in an office that has two women who have been sailing for as many years as I am old. I am so looking forward to this next experience and hope that time (if I have to wait until next spring) doesn't fizzle my enthusiasm.
