With the US Gondola Nationals a little more than two weeks away,
I figured I'd better get my butt out on the water and row a bit in order to
keep up with some of these young whipper-snappers we were chasing
around last year.
I grabbed Simon (one of my whipper-snappers)
and we headed out into the harbor under a bright full moon.
The winds were calm, the temperature - serene.
As we headed along the west side of Lido Island,
we could hear the ocean waves breaking on the other side of the peninsula.
If I had a name like Spielberg or Lucas, I might have been able to capture just how perfect it was out there tonight, but alas, I am not a Hollywood director, and you'll just have to take my word for it.
It was absolutely perfect out on the water tonight.
I don't know if my training run tonight will help me keep up with
the whipper-snappers in Providence,
but it was definitely worth it to get out on the water.
