Living Life Through Travels

That's me! Exploring & enjoying life through my travels. I strongly believe in working hard,

& enjoying the fruits of your labor. I have been self-employed most of my life, so I have worked 7 days a week/15 hours a day, multi-tasking several responsibilities. Through all of this, I have learned to take time out for myself and de-stress. It took years to get to that point, but better later, then never. #travel

One summer, a friend (who owns a 80' yacht) invited me to accompany her on a 2 week cruise on her yacht. 2 weeks! One week is the most time I have ever taken off at one time. Being self-employed, 2 weeks was a long time for me to be unemployed, but I decided to take the plunge anyway. It was time for me to start taking care of me again. I have worked hard all my life to take care of my 2 children; now it was time to take care of me.

The yacht had 3 bedrooms, captains quarter, full kitchen, living room and 2 decks. It was my first time on a yacht. It was fabulous. I have always loved the ocean, but have never been out that far in the water before. We started from Maryland, and spent our first night in New York. I have been to New York several times before, but have never traveled there by yacht. Seeing the Statute of Liberty from the water, was fabulous. (See Pics)

From New York, we went to the Hamptons and spent a couple of days there. Montauk (East Hamptons) was beautiful. The only thing I did not like was that the people were not that friendly in the Hamptons. We went to a concert and a few restaurants while we were there. Food was good. I love seafood.

From the Hamptons we went to Martha's Vineyard. We spent 2 or 3 days at Martha's Vineyard. While there, I went to Inkwell Beach (remember the movie Inkwell with Jada Pinkett). We were docked right in front of all the pubs, where all the action was going on. It was in August, so the African American Film Festival was going on. If you have never been to Martha's Vineyard, you should go. It is a great place to eat, drink, and relax. There I am relaxing on the lower deck.

From Martha's Vineyard we went to Cape Cod and Nantucket. We docked at Cape Cod, and took a fairy to Nantucket.

My final destination was to Newport RI. and the Connecticut Islands. That is a pic of my friends yacht.

Taking those 2 weeks off and sailing was the best vacation I have ever had. I have traveled outside the country several times, but nothing can compare to the 2 weeks I spent yachting. I never realized how beautiful the northern states are. The water was beautiful, the atmosphere was great, the people were friendly, and the food was good.

Where was your favorite vacation?
