I think that I may have mentioned that my husband has always loved sailing and dreams of living on a boat! I myself took sailing lessons years ago and sailed with my family for many years on Lake Michigan, as for living on a boat…maybe for a week or two, not for my permanent home.
Anyway, this weekend we went to he The Tides Inn where my husband took the first of many classes to start him on his way to living and sailing long distances on his yet to be purchased sail boat.
Located on the Chesapeake in Irvington, Va The Tides Inn is an easy drive from many cities in Virgina.

While he spent 8 hours a day sailing I took advantage of the resort. The Tides Inn is a beautiful place and definitely family and dog friendly. The grounds are peaceful and beautiful and there are so many things to do, from sailing, to kayaking, golfing, croquette, walking, biking, eating, spa, relaxing by the pool and antiquing! I biked, walked, looked at real estate, read a couple of books and went to the antique stores! I will show you my finds later and tell you about my adventure.

I could bore you to death with all of the photos, so I will leave it at this and hope that if you get to Irvington, VA you stop in the Tides Inn, I promise you will not be disappointed.
