Out for an Easter Cruise

My aunt and uncle live on the water in Newport, and our gondolas pass by there during cruises.  This evening, while having Easter dinner there,
I snapped a few shots of Steve Elkins as he glided by on the elegant Cassandra Anne. 

The Cassandra has just been re-launched, having had her rails replaced.  While she was out of the water, Steve and I spent some time painting and varnishing her - so it was gratifying to see her out, doing what she does best.  I'm sure it was even more enjoyable for Steve to take passengers on a boat he'd done so much work on.

The funny looks are probably because I climbed up on top of a big concrete post to get the "dramatic down-shot". 

Many thanks to Steve for taking time away on a holiday to make things perfect for those lucky passengers.
