don’t rock my boat

12 Apr

Although Danny’s screensaver seems to prove otherwise, I am a horrible, terrible swimmer.

a secret fantasy, perhaps?

SO horrible that riding in any type of boat that is bigger than a cruise ship (okay, never have I ever ACTUALLY been on a cruise) makes me a bit apprehensive.

However, as you can tell- I can’t resist a good day in the sun. When Danny& his bud Taylor invited me on Danny’s small john boat this afternoon, it was a YES without hesitation.

oh captain my captain

Right through the canal- and out into the bay! I love the fact that this runs through Danny’s parents’ backyard. One day my friends, one day.


The weather was GORGEOUS. I seriously love Virginia Beach- I don’t think this place could get any more beautiful if it tried.

surreal...including taylor's backside..

The boys fished and I basked in the sunshine- aside from a fear of swimming I have a terrible fear of worms. I could probably tell you more things I’m afraid of than more things I am NOT afraid of. I’m working on it.. 😉

cat fish!


And since all that fishin’ leaves a girl exhasuted 😉 we headed over to my most favorite “fast food” joint- Tropical Smoothie Cafe. I ordered the veggie-veggie (I probably won’t eat fish for at least a week now..) stuffed with rice, asparagus, tomato, beans, corn, and balsamic.

all time fave

Ah. There are no Tropical Smoothie Cafes in Jersey- I don’t know how I lived this long without one. Of course I got an orange on the side, or as Danny likes to tease me for saying- an “ARE-ANGE”..

Time to hit the gym! I’m ready for a solid strength training session tonight.

    I love being out in boats! I don’t necessarily like water sports which is generally what my friends do, I’m more of an along for the ride kind of girl:) Tropical Smoothie is so yummy! I always get the breakfast wraps and share a Hawaiian Breeze Smoothie! or I should say I used to before they closed the one near me:( The veggie wrap looks great though I’ll have to try it the next time I go to one!

    Virginia Beach is beautiful! I’ve only been once and it took me 8 hours when it should’ve been 5 but it was so worth it!

    My hubby is from VA so we visit often and I, too, think it’s a gorgeous state. Hiking around Charlottesville is awesome too!
