Gondolier Steve Elkins and I were both out tonight with dinner cruises in Newport.
The air was a little cool, but nothing unusual for February in this region. Wind was minimal, and the sunset was beautiful.
I noticed that Steve's boat had a contingent of rather persistent ducks. They often come over to say "hello", and "have you got any extra food laying around in there?".
Steve's couple did, and they got the ever-faithful love and attention of a small flock of Mallards.
