Sailing at the Inn at Perry Cabin

Sailing at the Inn at Perry Cabin

While we were at the Inn at Perry Cabin JD surprised me with a sailing expedition. I’m always loved the idea of sailing, and even attended sailing camp on the Cape when I was younger, so it was the perfect surprise. We set out around 4 when the air wasn’t too hot and the sun was low in the sky.

We sailed around Miles River for a couple hours of peaceful bliss. The Captain was kind enough to teach us all about the boat and offer tips for where we can take sailing lessons in DC. Apparently there are a few sailing clubs that might take us on as deck hands during a race! Crazier things have happened, so fingers crossed!

The last time I was on a sailboat a hurricane was coming in, so the wind on the river was decidedly more peaceful. The Captain even let me steer for a minute. Don’t I look like I know what I’m doing? ; )

It was the perfect addition to our weekend and such a clever way to give a themed gift - cotton is the traditional gift for a second anniversary, and the sails were made of canvas!

If you go to St. Michaels I highly recommend taking some time on the water. There were kayakers, paddle boarders and boaters everywhere.

Do you sail? Any tips for a beginner?

The Inn At Perry Cabin

Inn at Perry Cabin

As I mentioned on Friday, we went to the Inn at Perry Cabin for a few days for our anniversary. It was heaven! The Inn sits on the water, and the entire place radiates a sense of peace and calm. Along with a gorgeous landscape, there are outdoor fire pits throughout the property, along with a fireplace in the room, which I loved. We spent most of days reading in front of the water, then the pool and then back to the water with lots of great food in between. We also explored the charming down town, and went on a sail boat ride (it was one of the best surprises ever, I’ll share the pictures soon!)

The Inn’s Adirondack chairs were so comfortable, and the temperature in the shadow as perfect to sit by the water and read for hours. I wore my packable bow hat, which I’ve loved for years. The bow on the back is so classic and it does an amazing job keeping the sun out of your eyes. Plus, you can squish it when you pack and it comes back into life. I love how the hat looks which shorts and a tee, or a sundress like I’m wearing here. This one has bows in the back and a short ruffled sleeve; these cute details really elevate the dress and I love the pink pattern! Bows on the dress and bows on my hat - that’s a good day ; )

I love this hot pink dress! It has ruffled sleeves, a ruffled hem and a sash you can knot or tie in a bow. The tailoring makes it super flattering, and it can be dressed up or down. Plus the print has lobsters on it, so cheeky! I wore it to see Frozen, and it’s since become a party dress favorite!

We sat on the porch in the morning and watched the sun rise over the water. A glorious way to start the day!

Overall it was some much needed romantic relaxation at a beautiful spot I can’t wait to return to. I’m thinking a cozy fall getaway is going to be in order in a few months! The water surrounded by changing leaves and outdoor bonfires? Just heaven.
