For pretty much my entire life, I’ve lived near the ocean. I was born on the Gulf Coast, grew up part of the way in New Jersey and have spent most of my life on the West Coast (California and Washington). There’s just something about being near the water that appeals to me. It’s a unique feeling – that aroma of sea air – the beautiful sunsets, the easy access to lots of great seafood.
One thing I regret, however, is that even though I’ve lived near the water most of my life, I don’t spend nearly enough time out on the water. I used to do quite a bit of sailing when I was younger, but keeping and maintaining a boat isn’t a cheap prospect and, frankly, I can’t afford waterfront property in Seattle. That’s why I’m really looking forward to October 7th, when my wife Lynn and I will be attending a Two Beers Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor) beer tasting and dinner and cruise, courtesy Waterways Cruises And Events.
Here are some more details about this event from Waterways Cruises And Events:
