Just another Summer Day...in January



This time of year we never know what we'll get,
weather-wise, that is.

Today I was happy to be rowing in my summer uniform:
short sleeves, thin overshirt, and mesh deck shoes with no socks.
My sunglesses weren't dark enough, 

and I was still warm enough to sweat a little.

Just another summer day in January.
I just hope we'll have this kind of weather on Valentine's Day.

Back in 2019...

With all the craziness leading up to the last day of the year, 
and the requisite lazy recovery after, 
I neglected to post these images from December 29th here in Newport. 
Just another day - working a job that's way better than I deserve.

Gondolier Mike Bixler heads off with happy passengers 
on the gondola known as "Stella".

Rowing alongside Linda Isle, the lady in the gondola has no idea that she's about to be asked the biggest question ever by the man she loves.

She said "yes", of course.
And they lived happily ever after.
