En route Lori egged me on to race four boats. I opened it up to 5000 RPM and zoomed right past them.
On their sailboat the journey took about six hours rather than the thirty minutes it took us.
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.
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.
I was slightly surprised at how many women expressed disappointment of not being included in the TaTas for Ted book.
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.”
He began devouring not only his snacks but also shoveled large forkfuls of cake into his mouth.
By the time we got to the Patuxent River it became significantly gray overcast accompanied with a downpour of rain.
The wedding was lovely. But then again, any wedding that has a beer sponsor is likely to be fun.
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.
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.
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.
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.
