In June our family went sailing aboard the Schooner J&E Riggin on a trip that also happened to be the first of their Maine knitting cruises – lucky me! We were gifted with great weather, wonderful shipmates and delicious food – no surprise there as I already knew Chef Annie Mahle does amazing things on her tiny wood stove. We met some fun people and it even turned out that 2 passengers knew each other from a long time ago but didn’t know each other would be sailing on this trip only to discover their connection while knitting away! It was really fun. My friend/colleague Sharon also sailed on the same trip – it’s always fun to just hang out and not talk shop.
Of course I took a ton of photos – a few of my favorites I’m including here. If you’d like to see more you can find them on my Maine Knitting Cruise Flickr album – aren’t you glad I’m not posting them all here? 🙂
If you love sailing or love knitting or even better love both – you’ve got to give the knitting cruises a try! So much fun!
