On the water

Yesterday afternoon, C. called and asked if I wanted to come along on a harbor/dinner cruise. So we went. It was on a spacious converted island ferry, all tidy and nicely painted, with decorative lights and ivy twining around the columns to make it look less functional. There was music (generally too loud, which is why the people clustered as far away from it as possible to talk), appetizers, dinner, dessert - not bad food, though I wouldn't rate it much better than that, and pleasant company. The boat failed to go much of anywhere, mostly just back and forth along the coastline and frequently in laconic circles, but at least it was out on the weather, and, while the sun was still up, offered a lovely view of downtown and the island airport. All in all, a pleasant way to spend the evening.
