My cute lakeside city in Texas is thought for one factor specifically: crusing. But one way or the other, I’ve by no means been crusing earlier than! Since my greatest buddy is visiting from Los Angeles, I assumed it might be enjoyable to take her crusing round Lake Ray Hubbard. What, is that this not the way you image Texas?
Sail with Scott is a staple of Rockwall. There are sundown cruises, starlight cruises, and daytime household cruises. We booked a 90-minute sundown cruise on a Friday night time. The boat leaves the dock promptly at 7:00 pm and by golly, it did. (We have been very impressed with the Broadway-level punctuality!)
You’re requested to reach 20-Half-hour prematurely. We received there at 6:15 to take some images at The Harbor Rockwall earlier than crusing away and we have been the primary to line up, that means we received first choose for the place to sit down. You undoubtedly need to give your self buffer time as a result of parking at The Harbor, not less than on a Friday night time, is fairly nuts.
As soon as aboard, we opened our rosé. The cruise is BYOB and also you’re allowed to deliver meals, so I packed a boat-friendly picnic!
The Seawolf has a number of seating choices: benches that every match two individuals within the entrance, benches alongside the edges of the boat, and even some picnic tables within the again. We selected the entrance bench on the starboard aspect and I liked our seats.
Even on July 1st, we weren’t too scorching! There was an ideal breeze coming off of the water and we clicked alongside properly, going shut sufficient to the shore that we might admire the homes and yards. As soon as the sails have been unfurled, we pulled out our orzo pasta salad packed in mason jars for dinner. I additionally introduced Kuhlman Cellars herbed almonds, pineapple bread, and snickerdoodle sandwiches for dessert.

The playlist was enjoyable – all crusing and water themed, a bit of Frank Sinatra and Jack Johnson, all straightforward listening. We went down the shore for about 45 minutes, then circled to move again to the Harbor for the final 45 minutes. Our Captain was pretty, providing to let company take images on the wheel and all the pieces. Additionally they had complimentary waters on the prepared.
This has received to be palms down one of the crucial magical issues you are able to do within the DFW space. Rockwall is simply twenty minutes east of Dallas and if you happen to’ve by no means been, The Harbor itself is stunningly stunning. When my German buddies visited me, they mentioned, “This seems similar to Spain!” I’ve by no means been to Spain however I’ll take their phrase for it.
There are lots of eating places at The Harbor (my favorites are Giovanni, Gloria’s, Rodeo Goat, and Sideways BBQ) so you may simply seize dinner earlier than or after the cruise or simply sit on a bench and watch the ultimate moments of the sundown.
Completely satisfied crusing,
