Venus in the Sky

Tonight was a perfect example of what I dream of - when I dream of rowing my gondola in Newport.
Really, it was darn near perfect.

The sun set, the winds were easy, and coming off the ocean, 
and we were blessed with both stars and planets to view overhead.  
The most prominent was Venus.
She was so bright, so early, that I had to make sure I wasn't looking at a slow-moving aircraft.
To make the evening even better, once it was dark, 
we saw large numbers of glow-worms on the surface of the water.

If I ever wish for "just one more night on the water" in Newport,
I will wish for a night like tonight.
