Two Ships Passing

One week before Valentine's Day, Simon and I had the whole place to ourselves.  Our passengers enjoyed the serenity of an evening that truly fit the description of "the calm before the storm".

For one thing, we expect the rain to come tomorrow,
...aaand we expect it to go away after that and find somewhere else to fall for at least a week. After that it can rain all it wants around here.

We are also preparing in so many ways for the busiest time of the year for gondoliers in Newport.  I've often referred to Valentine's Day as 
"the Superbowl of gondolas", because it's the biggest day of the year for us and we often end up working just as hard as if we were in the big game.

Tonight however, the work was easy, the couple in my boat got engaged, and it was just two ships passing in the calm before the storm.
