Last night was one of those mushy, romantic moments that will stick with me forever.
It was up there with the cliff-side dinner we had on Santorini 10 years ago. It was up there with sitting beachside eating Thai during our honeymoon on Koh Samui.
Mr Styling You and I had a date night. In. New. York. City.
For $60 each we stepped on board the beautiful 80-foot schooner, the Adirondack, and spent two hours sailing on the Hudson River, watching the sun set over this amazing city (ummm, sorry for the overuse of the words amazing, incredible et al but they are very much warranted).
Oh, and included in the price? Plentiful champagne and cute crew that I didn’t notice one bit because I was sitting next to the love of my life 😉
A bit like the helicopter tour gave us one perspective of this city, this offered another one. One that will be forever etched in my mind.
And no, I’m not just talking about shapely butts in chinos
Under full-sail, getting
sloshed a bit tipsy and seeing the good lady Liberty glow in the late evening sun will do that.
The peace of being out on the water – away from the hustle and bustle of the city – was a stunning contrast for all the senses.
And the peace of not having to answer a 7-year-old’s “are we finished yet?” questions was pretty damn good too. On that front, I have Louisa Claire from Brand Meets Blog to thank. She referred us to her gorgeous babysitter and Flynn was well cared for at our apartment.
Oh, and nearly forgot to mention … thanks to a tip off from New York blogger, A Cup of Jo, we stopped at The Lobster Place at Chelsea Market to pick up food for on board. Mr SY downed a lobster roll like nobody’s business and I tucked into a tray of fresh sushi.
Cheapest and most memorable date night right there!
We booked our sunset sail through Zerve.
