Sailing Away...

Tonight the Shenk Family got to take a sunset sailing cruise on the Great Salt Lake, courtesy of Poppa Pelt (thanks, Pop!), and it was AWESOME! We had forgotten how much we love being out on the water, and this was just so lovely and so peaceful. The captain was great and he and James had a marvelous time being silly. We're looking forward to doing it again in the fall when it's cooler, and it will be something we look forward to taking out-of-town guests on as well. (Call now for reservations at Casa de Shenk.)

James was unconvinced in the beginning.
The California Gull is the state bird of Utah. (fun fact)

Silly faces with Captain Jim.
Our beautiful boat, Impulse.

A beautiful sunset to cap off a lovely day.
A sailing pro by the end, he was ready to get a boat and sail every day.
