The night we drove back to Plattsburgh to take our soon to be sailboat for a test sail turned into an impromptu date night. Things were feeling good with the boat, which helped the mood of course, but my favorite part of the night was the ferry ride home. I tend to romanticize travel by boat ever since the first time I took a ferry from Osaka to Tokushima in Japan at 22. Even a quick ride across Lake Champlain makes me feel exotic. This particular night we grabbed a few slices of pizza, sat on the bench on the top level of the ferry and dreamt aloud about the possibility of owning our own sailboat. The air was warm and the breeze was filled with both contentment and hope. It was a perfect summer night.
