'I'm on a boat'

    Yesterday, Shaun and I were invited to celebrate a friend's birthday by spending a day on a rented boat/yacht and cruising around St. Tropez. Obviously, we jumped at the chance and said, 'hell yes' unison (yes, we are one of those cheesy couples that sometimes say the same things at the same times). So with the weekend off (LOVE FRIDAY GAMES) we headed out to sea for a day of fun, sun, drinks and a ridiculously large amount of laughs. My biggest fears were sea sickness, and sharks--I'm only human, but I threw all caution to the wind and figured I would be good since most of the others on the boat either currently work on yachts or have in the past so I felt at ease with them at the helm. Fortunately for me, the sea was incredible calm. The conversations ranged from anything and everything since it was a melting pot of nationalities of Kiwis, Brits, Aussies, Irish, Canadians, and of course, us Yanks. We anchored around Pampelonne Beach in St. Tropez for a few hours of snorkeling, snacking, drinking and in general, celebrating Annie's birthday. There were no shark sightings, however there were many schools of fish, starfish and sea urchins. There will be 2 things that I will always was the dance party that formed on the front of the boat that rivaled any stereotypical rap video and the second was a quiet time when Shaun and I were alone on the front of the boat and realized how lucky we are to be able to live this life and experience the things we have experienced. So thanks Annie, for allowing us to celebrate your birthday with you and giving us a glimpse into your glamorous life, we will happily say 'hell yes' anytime.
