Today Clara met Shadow!

Whenever Alix and I looked at a potential boat, we took Clara with us to see how she did. She quickly tried to get off every boat, except for Shadow. Today I was excited, and a little nervous, to take her to OUR boat. Alix and I wanted to make her first experience a good one and kept this trip simple. Lunch on the dock.

From her first step on the boat, Clara owned it! She explored every nook and cranny, and claimed the aft cabin as her cabin. There is a small slider that opens into the galley and she loves to pop her head out and say hello.

It makes my heart happy that my daughter enjoys the boat. Next time we will fire up the motor and go for a motor cruise to get her used to the noise and being away from the dock.
