So on this first official date in a long time, we went up to Sausalito to go on a sailboat ride with Ohana Sailing. I grew up sailing and racing, and hubby has been boating since he was a kid too, so it was pretty nostalgic. Of course, sailing in a large boat under the Golden Gate Bridge and around San Francisco Bay is a lot different than the little boats I've sailed on Midwest lakes! The views were beautiful! The wind was a bit stiff at times, so there was just enough splashing to make it fun.

One gallery in particular was full of art I really liked. The owner of the store was a lady from Venice, and loved to talk about the different artists and pieces. Hubby liked the t-shirts that were dyed with chocolate at a specialty t-shirt shop. Unfortunately, none were manly enough. I guess most people think chocolate is a girl thing! I loved the jewelry at one shop that was cast in leaf and flower shapes, a bit like my wedding ring. The jewelry was a bit spendy, but beautiful. Maybe casting jewelry something I'd like to try my hand at some day, as if I need another arts and craft thing to do! Hubby can do the stones, and I can do the metal. That might be another idea for us to do something together.
For dinner, we looked around for something the kids wouldn't like to eat. We settled on Thai food. Hubby had a seafood plate and I had chicken and spinach with a peanut sauce. We also splurged on deep fried coconut battered sweet potatoes. Wow, they were good!
We then walked around town to work off the food and came across a concert in the park. Here is just a taste of the event.
Doesn't all this look fun? Even though we probably won't be able to splurge like this for awhile, I think I'll have to make it a priority to spend more alone time with the man I love.
