sailing on the Charles River

After deciding to move to Gloucester, I'm now in my final stretch of enjoying my time in the city... Sailing on the Charles River (by the Hatchshell) is something I've always considered since moving to Boston, but never got around to doing... Well one of my co-workers mentioned it to me, and I thought I'd give it a try....

So for 80$, you get a 30 day trial membership which includes full access to the classes and unlimited use of the boats... Here is a picture of the current conditions on the Charles:

I'm on track to get my Helmsman rating (good enough to let others on the boat with me), but if time permits I'd like to take even more classes that they have available.

Let me know if you want to join me sometime!! for a class, a solo sail on your own, or perhaps you can join my crew and help me with the sails!

My birthday happens to fall pretty close to the half-way point of the calendar year, the timeliness of this date is perfect as it provides another annual opportunity to reflect on the bigger picture of my life, am I still heading in the right direction? are my new years goals and resolutions being followed? do adjustments within my personal or professional life need to be made?

North Shore - Gloucester

After living and working in the heart of the city for a few years, it's time I move on... I'm purchasing my first home, a condo up in Gloucester, MA. Most of my friends are still living in the city, which is good for when I want to visit -- But personally, I just couldn't keep throwing money away in rent...

So, this will be interesting... My commute about doubles, but with a commuter line stop steps away from my new home, I plan to start to enjoy my commute's with a good book or laptop(wifi coming soon) for the ride. It's going to be nice to be live so close to the ocean with Rockport, Gloucester and Manchester by the Sea beaches so close...
