Say a prayer/do a rain dance because provided the area gets the rain they need, this will be my view in approximately three weeks:
Kyle and I are going sailing!! I’ve never been on a sailboat before, and considering I have thing about small boats, it makes me a little nervous. But it’s vacation! You’re supposed to do fun/terrifying things and I love the water. I love sunsets. I love not sitting in my hotel room and worrying about the upcoming week.
We found the company through a groupon deal, but after exploring their website we decided we didn’t so much want to learn how to sail (what the groupon was offering) as we wanted to have the experience of going out on the boat. So we signed up for a sunset sail instead of the class. I have high expectations of it being gorgeous. (It is also my hope that I don’t fall off the boat.)
But first: they need rain. The lake is at a record low and if the heavens don’t open in the next few weeks, we’ll be seeing a movie instead. And I see plenty of movies in New Jersey.
When I was little I believed that it rained when God cried. So say a prayer, do a rain dance, send good thoughts into the universe–and hope with me that God’s tears will fill Utah Lake in time for our trip.
