A Sunday Afloat in Woodbridge

Whenever the weather is really beautiful, I find myself wishing that I was near water.  We live about an hour from the coast here, but it can be so cold and windy even on sunny days, that we wait until summertime to head to the beach.  But on a boat in a marina?  You never […]
