The highlight on Friday was a visit from Jen and Mark, Erin and Adam. They drove up from DC for supper on the boat and a chance for Erin to explore and get used to the boat for next weekend when they will stay with us in Annapolis.
Erin was very interested in exploring on deck and below, as all the adults watched like hawks, as she maneuvered in and out of the cockpit, on and off the boat, and up and down the ladder. of course, she wanted to do everything by herself! Adam just enjoyed the activity, smiling and looking. Joe and I were amazed to see how much he has grown up, sitting on our laps with minimal support, pushing to a crawl position when Jen put him down on the bunk. If he could he would get his whole hand in his mouth. Three or four fingers get bunched in there easily! We finished the evening with a trip to the ice cream store.
The day was hot, breaking heat records, mid 90's, but cooled off by evening enough to be comfortable with a good breeze. Joe attended the trawler show in a neighboring marina and I found a hairdresser to attend to my needs, as well as a trip to Whole Foods market, a block from the marina.
