If I Had A Boat
I love love love the water. Being on it, being in it, being near it. I feel a little more at ease when a body of water is close by. But I've never been sailing. And I would like to remedy that. There's something so romantic and enchanting about sailboats. The wooden decks, the massive white sails, the work it takes for a worthwhile ride.
After a quick online search, I learned that through Chicago Sailing, you can charter sailboats for private parties of 4 or 6 people (there's also a boat for larger groups). It's not cheap, but it's definitely more affordable than I would have guessed. I think this would be a worthwhile investment before summer ends. My four best friends and I and an afternoon on the water with a picnic and panoramic views of the city. Sounds good, no?
