Photos from an Afternoon Cruise

I had a nice time on the water today.
Bright sunshine with very few clouds...and great big wind to fight with.
I am not a big fan of the wind sometimes: it seems to find me any time I'm on an expedition, and if I have a whole day and evening of cruises, quite often it will accompany me. But on a day like today it was a welcome challenge - keeping me on my toes and making sure I got a decent workout.

Along with the wind, a few of our favorite ducks came by to make sure my passengers weren't smuggling any bread without paying a toll.

My passengers grabbed my camera and snapped a few shots of me while I rowed. Here's one of me getting that ever-important "Venetian lean" in full effect.
...and just generally being a dork.
Re-emerging into the harbor from under the Newport Blvd. bridge, I caught a shot while the shadow of the bridge was still covering the boat. After the cruise, I sat on my boat and enjoyed a sandwich while admiring the carvings on the deck of the Wedding Gondola.
Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.
