So my wife and I, now empty-nesters, need something to do. We are thinking about boating, which we’ve always enjoyed. The TX-19 was a blast, but with no kids around, it’s just not the same. I’m closing in on 60, my wife is closing in on 50. We still like to water-ski, but none of our 50-ish friends do.
We are now thinking about getting a sailboat. I’ve sailed twice in my life, and really liked it both times. My wife has never done it. I would like to go out sailing in a 25 to 30 ft. sailboat and see if she likes it before I invest in something she’s not going to enjoy. I’m hoping we can possibly take some sailing lessons or find some other way to get on a sailboat.
By the way, I went sailing on Puget Sound once and was totally amazed at how much I loved it. Seeing orcas and sea lions while we quietly skimmed across the water was something I’ve never forgotten.
I need to find a way to make this happen.
