Monthly Archives: September 2014

► It’s Like Glass: September 28, 2014

En route Lori egged me on to race four boats. I opened it up to 5000 RPM and zoomed right past them.

► Runnin’ the Potomac: September 27, 2014

On their sailboat the journey took about six hours rather than the thirty minutes it took us.

► Run Around the Point: September 26, 2014

On our way down the Bay I had to do a careful dance of keeping the RPM above 35 but below 38/39 RPM. Going into the Potomac River again posed delicate navigating to reduce the impact of wind and waves.

► The French Girls: September 21, 2014

I slowly cruised towards the raft up and instructed Lori “to make friends.” Throughout the contest every time I looked to our port side more and more boats were rafted up to us. At one point I counted a total of 14 boats in our raft up.

► Again and Again: September 19 & 20, 2014

I was slightly surprised at how many women expressed disappointment of not being included in the TaTas for Ted book.

► Tatas for Ted: September 18, 2014

I found it funny at how many women didn’t think they would be in the book and then a page would flip and they’d say, “I am in the book! I don’t remember that.”

► Antics: September 14, 2014

He began devouring not only his snacks but also shoveled large forkfuls of cake into his mouth.

► Cove Point Lighthouse: September 13, 2014

By the time we got to the Patuxent River it became significantly gray overcast accompanied with a downpour of rain.

► Nice Day for a White Wedding: September 12, 2014

The wedding was lovely. But then again, any wedding that has a beer sponsor is likely to be fun.

► When I’m Available: September 11, 2014

According to him this is a collectors’ item. I asked, “So, that means we shouldn’t drink it?” Correct. I then promptly popped it open and began to pour.

► Double D: September 7, 2014

I then realized, we would have more fun if we were on Double D so we could be a part of the party on the way over and back.

► Rough Rider: September 5, 2014

I noticed a Navy-like ship also leaving Annapolis. I was hoping it, too, would be heading south. If so, I wanted to ride in its wake for a smoother ride. No such luck.

► Putting Together the Pieces: September 4, 2014

Yep, the ride home did not look promising. I scanned down river looking to see if any portion of the river might offer a less brutal ride home. I saw no route less heinous than any other.

► Not Going Down Alone: September 1, 2014

“I know she could make the journey on her own, BUT, if anything did happen it’s always nice to have someone to go down with.”
