Catamaran TradeWind Sailing Cruise

Catamaran TradeWind Sailing Trip was so much fun. The crew was very friendly and you had great service! They kept you laughing. You knew you were in for a good time. While we waited for the people to load up, Jordan and Alex played in the ocean. They absolutely loved that. We had to be barefoot to board right on Waikiki Beach behind the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel. What more could the children asked for! You were told to sit in the front if you wanted to get wet. Well….., I went closer to the back, leaving Christopher and his beautiful children to enjoy being splashed at every dip and turn. They absolutely got soaked. Again, they were the happiest. The were squealing with laughter. The cruise, itself for Jordan and Alex, was nowhere near as exciting as the idea of the unexpected baths from the ocean.

The excursion only lasted 90 minutes. You know me, that was more than enough time to make friends…lol. I love meeting new people. We are all connected. It’s a pleasure to meet fascinating folks all over the world. You were sailing along the Waikiki coast. It was a very relaxing and sweet sail with gorgeous views of the ocean. The tropical breezes, the serenity of Hawaii’s deep blue waters and the warm Hawaiian sun just made you feel so good. You wanted the sail to go on forever.

At some point, Jordan and Alex were allowed to steer the cruise. Alex couldn’t even reached the wheel. That didn’t stop her from trying. They were all smiles.

An unforgettable island memory!!!!!

Pictures to come……..

Snowmobiles Tours……..-30

Yes, we are going BACK outside!!!

We went back to the house shortly after being out in that dreadful windy freezing cold. Jordan and Alex had to finish their homework anyway. Their teachers do not give homework on the weekends, but we do! Did I forget to mention that Maddie (Alexandra’s Baby) came on the trip as well? Maddie never stays home.

If I thought it was cold in the morning, just wait until that evening. Did I make you understand how much I did not want to go back outside, not even for a half a second. So by 3:30 pm, we returned all rentals. I’m sorry….Christopher returned everything. I was only going back out when I had to. Val and I got the children ready. Once again, they were so excited. They knew SNOWMOBILE RIDES were coming. Finally it was happening. It didn’t matter how cold it was. Let’s go!!!!! Thank goodness for summer, heat, the beach, the pool, ice cream …..I digress.

My children and I gained so much weight in these past few days. We added more and more layers to fight off the cold. I could barely move. The cold and I just don’t mix. We have a strange relationship. No, I’m not moving to a warmer climate. I like New Jersey. I’m ok with NJ’s weather. I just can’t function elsewhere. Jordan loves the cold. Sometimes, I have to wonder if he’s my child. No kidding! 4:30 pm, we arrived at Stratton Snowmobile & ATV Tours at Stratton Mountain Resort . The children were bouncing out of their seats. The adults went first. One hour and 10 minutes going up the mountain on snowmobiles with the wind whipping us around like ragdolls. With all that said, it was not so bad.
