Invasion

Washington DC (see the picture)
N 38 52.736 W 077 01.507


Last night, we met Rob. Rob is the brother of Penny. Penny and Richard are our cruising friends from Viking Rose, the most beautiful Westsail 42 (not 32, but 42) you ever did see. Rob is a very accomplished sailor. He is here as part of the crew of Spirit of South Carolina, a school schooner that resembles the classic yacht America. This afternoon, we're going to try to get a tour of Spirit, guided by Rob.

Today is the start of phase 2 of Dick and Libby's excellent DC adventure. We're being invaded, but a very welcome invasion. Our son John, his wife Cheryl and our grandchildren Nick, Sara, Katelyn, and Victoria are coming to spend the weekend with us. We'll try to be their tour guides since by now we are DC veterans. They have to drive back to Syracuse on Sunday.

On Tuesday, our daughter Jennifer will fly down from Vermont to spend a week with us. Once again, we'll be tour guides. Wow, what a wealth of good fortune we're having. Back in school, the guys used to call it "living in s***."

I may be too busy to post blogs in the next few days. Hang on.
