In the evening we went on a cruise of theChesapeake bay. Our boat is behind Ed and Amanda here. It was such a beautiful day--hot with a light breeze.
We celebrated Mom's birthday somewhat belatedly. The singing wait staff sang Happy Birthday to her and the other celebrants. Being the off season, we even got a window table. Aside from three birthday and two anniversary parties, most of our fellow cruisers were beer-swilling businessmen on a retreat! None of them got up during the dancing!
John spent some time at the helm swapping stories with the pilot. I learned that ships and planes have a green light on their right and a red light on their left. That bit of knowledge just might come in useful someday! The nicest part of the cruise was sitting on the deck after dinner just enjoying the view of the lights and the full moon.
