We are out on the boat this afternoon Tommy and I and our good friends Bill and Martha. Being out on the water is a good escape for everyone. The water is calming and the friendship is genuine. We had dinner last night with another couple we are close with; Jenn and Gary. Jenn and I have been friends since we were 17 years old and her and Tommy grew a few houses away from each other. I remember when I met Jenn; I mentioned I had a boyfriend “but you wouldn’t know him,” I said to her. Jenn answered, well try me you never know.” We both almost fell over when she said they grew up together ! Life is funny. Who would have thought that at 51 years old we would still be friends.
So here we are on the boat. The weather is great, sunny but not too hot, very few clouds in the sky. Our mission is to get to a restaurant across the bay to New Jersey and have dinner then ride the boat back. I haven’t asked how far or close we are to the restaurant. To be honest I’ve been pretty quiet this whole trip. Just soaking up the sun and enjoying the waves. I turn around every now and then but I don’t know what I’m looking at, so I’ll just sit here quiet and enjoy the ride.
