Orange You Glad We Stayed for the Sunset
This weekend my boyfriend asked me if I wanted to go out on his boat, and I asked if we could stay out for sunset, he agreed. We headed out onto Lake St. Clair, with a goal of getting me in the water and feeling secure in a life jacket, dinner and of course the sunset (Hallmark worthy, right… I know). This wasn’t like one of our regular dates; this one meant a little bit more. You see I am dating a fish, and while I would love to be a mermaid that just isn’t the reality of it. I don’t know how to swim, and I wasn’t comfortable just hanging out in wavy water with a lifejacket on. You know what though, I did it. Sure it took me forever to get up the courage to walk down the ladder and finally let go having to put all my trust in my boyfriend. I got into water that was wavy, that’s right it wasn’t calm it was wavy and I still did it. When we got out of the water we headed to dinner. Up until doing it with my boyfriend, I had never taken a boat to dinner and it’s a lot of fun. There’s just something different about hopping in the boat heading to dinner and over looking the water while eating. Once we finished dinner we headed back out onto Lake St. Clair to catch the sunset, the sky was looking a tad bit pathetic, but then it changed and everything went orange. It was the perfect end to a perfect day.
