Ok, I really hate to make posts out of order, but this one wasn’t ready, then I got a little lazy and never finished it… but now I have the photos I needed and have had the motivation I needed to get it done. So, I am ready to tell you about our day aboard the Stray Cat catamaran.
(Side note: The Stray Cats are one of my Dad’s favourite bands, and he’s always talking about their Stray Cat Strut. Hence the title of this post!)
So, we got two weeks of Spring Break. It was awesome! Now, I’ll probably be singing a different tune mid-May when all my Kansas friends are wrapping up the school year and I still have SIX weeks! Anyway, Tony and I had a voucher for 10 people to spend a day aboard a catamaran and picked the first Tuesday of our Spring Break.
Here’s Captain Peter, the Business Manager at school. He has lots of experience driving boats, which saved us all a bunch of money because we didn’t need to hire a captain. Thanks Peter!
The boys got the sails up and we were sailing off into the Sir Francis Drake Channel with not a care in the world. In the distance we could see BVI Spring Regatta starting off.
Our day was spent with the sun on our faces and the wind in our hair as we sailed toward Cooper Island, where we were planning to stop for lunch. Tony cooked the burgers and hot dogs while the girls brought out the pasta and potato salad, chips, and cookies that made up our veritable feast! Here’s our group photo after gorging ourselves!
