Labor Day Sailing

Last Monday for Labor day, my husband and I were invited by one of our favorite “couple” friends to go sailing. We were super excited because although I grew up on Long Island and am used to boating, I’ve never actually been on a sailboat, and never navigated city waters.

The day started off gray and bleak, but by the end of the afternoon the cloud cover burned off and it was one of the most beautiful days ever. We drank, had a barbecue, watched the sun set, then took the boat along the coast to view Coney Island by nightfall before heading back for the evening. It was the perfect way to end the summer and mentally prepare for fall.

    Wow! What an ideal Labor Day activity! So relaxing… and scenic. I haven’t sailed in years! Fun to sit back and let the skilled men do the work, isn’t it?
