I don't know about you but when I hear the words "Yacht Club" I think, "Oh, no, really?" But I've learned that not all Yacht Clubs are what I thought they were. For example, the Fidalgo Yacht Club. We met a few members on the dock where we keep our boat and decided to check it out. Just like learning to enjoy a 55+ community (which also made me shudder) I'm learning to really like the club. Just not the word "yacht."
Here's why we joined:
We just attended our first gathering (they call it a cruise) at one of my favorite places, Roche Harbor. (And yes, it's one of the snootiest places in the Northwest, but honestly, not this past weekend.) I didn't take many pictures of the members as I don't know them very well yet, and the photos I did take were pretty awful thanks to the brilliant Sunday sun. All that said, here's a look at our first cruise.
