It was a lovely day on the water.
There was a slight breeze, the tide was high and nearly a full boat.
Anything is possible under those conditions.
Dingle, the harbor seal came round several times. She's a bit shy so no pictures this time.
We take it easy.... as several participated in the big fundraiser for the
Youth Marine Foundation the day before.
Rain hats off to Sally who always represents Vérité with positivism.
See us clapping for her!
Most of us would have traded the fancy meal and all the hoopla for time on the boat.
Well, except for the cookies that were served - because we made them!
They were delicious. Thank you bakers - the guests enjoyed them too.
There weren't a one left either!
Nice treats always make everything better, especially rowing.,
unless of course there are so many treats you can't decided what to have!
This time we were nearly in danger of reaching our treat capacity.
There were finger sandwiches - egg salad, zucchini nut with cream cheese spread.
A ton of nuts, tomatoes, hummm... what else...
oh, basil, motzarella and tomatoes, pear pecan muffins, some kind of cookie like spiced pumpkin?
chocolates, cheese and crackers, and I know there was more. Just no picture verification.
It looked like a blooming meal!
Those other boats coming in just better give us room to spread out the treats!
And of course there's always, almost always hot tea!
Lifeboat Tea! (or lemon ginger)
Thanks to Kathleen for slogging the heavy thermoses and cups because
without it, some of us might fall asleep over our full tummies.
I know.. it is a rough life.
