SORRY TO keep blogging about the Zodiac trip, but it was so wonderful that I just cannot help myself. Here are a few more pictures to make you want to join us next year.
This is the Captain's corner in the Chart House. Clearly his favorite place to relax, I never saw anyone else dare sit here. There are several cozy places aboard to sit and chat. The Chart house, the salon, the galley, and lots of comfortable places on deck.
Zodiac has 39 berths, some of them tiny, some of them spacious. Some of them in staterooms. This is the third berth in our stateroom. Room for the bass, all the ukuleles and luggage. I slept below, Erin's berth went un used, she slept on deck looking at the stars.
Here are the accommodations. A sink, a mirror, several shelfs to put your stuff and three berths with a warm wool blanket, a pillow and a adequate and comfortable mattress pad. Three berths in this one.
Here is Georgia McCush Heald on the helm watch. What fun to sail with Georgia. Georgia is 82. we have known each other since kindergarten. I was a year ahead of her. We did well, don't let age stop you, come on a Zodiac cruise, it will make you years younger.
This is an active trip, the passengers provide the muscle to sail the boat. Here is the crew folding the sail after a day of sailing. Georgia is helping push the heavy sail up to the folders above. There is a role for everyone and you need not over do it, but I can assure you you will feel like you earned your dinner.
And the great joy for me was sailing again with my daughter Erin, here thrilling to the experience of sailing this marvelous historic schooner Zodiac.
