My friend Kristie is in town from Alaska right now since she is getting married in Chelan at the beginning of August. It's been wonderful catching up with her and spending time with her! We've become pretty close over the past couple of years and we miss her and her hubby to be!
Last summer, while Kristie and Dan were still living in Bellingham, we kept talking about taking a "brews cruise" which is basically what it sounds like. A local brewery and a local whale watching company teamed up to create Wednesday night cruises in which beer and bratwursts (including vegetarian options) are served during a 90 minute cruise around the bay. The cruise is not intended to be a whale watching cruise as the boat stayed much too close to the shore for that. It is more of an "enjoy the scenery, drink some beer and socialize with your friends" kind of cruise.
I actually took several pictures while cruising, but I'm feeling too lazy to load them off of my camera right now. Instead, you get a couple of cellphone pics. It was a perfect night…temperatures hovering in the 80's at 7:00 at night! Kristie brought her parents and brothers along too and we all had a blast!
I highly recommend this cruise! There is also a wine tasting version of the cruise on Thursday nights (possibly with a different boat company as there are a couple of companies that operate these during the summer).
Love our little Bellingham!
