I have an ENORMOUS amount of pictures from this day!
I'm going to have to divide them up into several posts.
Not sure if they'll be in any particular order?
I'll try my best.
We waited for this day all month!
We had heard about Sailing Angles through Tyler's friend, who has a mentally disabled little sister.
They're a non-profit foundation.
They're out of Kemah, TX
Very generous yacht owners take mentally disabled persons and their families out for a day of sailing.
We headed about 40 minutes to Kemah.
We arrived at 9am.
We had NO idea what to expect!
I was secretly nervous about the 100+ degree weather.
We had so much excitement when we pulled up to the docks!
The hundreds of boats lined up were so neat!
Our boat was named, "Moon Eye".
She was so pretty and BIG!
We got all settled in, even learning how to tie different knots in ropes!
We soon were ready to take off for the day!
The houses along the bay were breathtaking! Very unreal!
Very neat to see our favorite Kemah Boardwalk from the bay side!
We passed under highway 146.
Passing boats of all kinds!
Lots of shrimp boats, racing boats, sail boats,
large 70ft. yachts, and tug boats.
It took us about 45 mins. to get out to the middle. Actually, the ship channel was right near us at that point. We could see the barges that carried the tankers.
We saw fish flying out of the water! LOTS! We were told it was because there were larger fish underneath trying to get them!
We saw PELICANS and sea gulls! We loved watching them dive down into the water to get fish!
We saw a lots of ball shaped things above the water surface. Those were markers to let the fisherman know where their crab traps are.
And the kids kept asking if we would see dolphins...
and WE DID!
They were quick, so I couldn't get a pic of them.
They were following us.
We were told that they like boats. They're very intrigued by them.
They were awesome!
We were THRILLED!!!!
Another post coming up.
