Sailing on Lake Tahoe

 Summer is officially here and we kicked it off Sunday afternoon by sailing around Lake Tahoe on the Woodwind II. Oh  -- we had a surprise visitor this weekend too -- Nick's aunt Lori from Minnesota is in California! 

The Woodwind II is a catamaran (twin-hulled) sailboat and has the only female captain on Lake Tahoe behind the helm. The excursion was about an hour and 45 minutes. We relaxed on the deck soaked in the sun, fresh air and well a few rum runners.

 

There was just the right amount of wind to put the sails up.


We stayed mostly on the front portion on the boat and the bartender even came to us :)



Of course we couldn't pass up a group photo.



If you find yourself in Lake Tahoe you must get out on the lake and I would highly recommend the Woodwind II. They offer various day and sightseeing cruises plus prices are pretty reasonable. For an afternoon cruise we paid $39, but the Sunset Champagne cruise is $51 and includes beer, wine and champagne. The sunset cruise is perfect for date-night, birthday celebrations or a relaxing bachelorette evening.  We'll definitely be cruising in the future.
