|The seafood market near the Capital Yacht Club is a great place|
to have lunch. We spent a fun day in Washington DC with Ed
and Benia from "Sea Angel"

Horicultural Museum near the Capital
We spent a day walking all over the city and as usual eating some wonderful meals. We met they and Sean's roommates Piper and Courtney at the Eastern Market for a great brunch then went down to the Native American Museum for the Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition. This was a lot of fun and our favorite performer won. We went shopping and then cooked a lovely dinner at Sean's. Piper and Courtney were able to join us for most of the day and Morgen came right after work for dinner.
For the next two weeks we spent a lot of time working on the boat. Scott installed two air conditioning units and the new chart plotter. I cleaned and had new stuffings put in the cushions, and the canvas resewed and water proofed.
|The orchids particularly were gorgeous!|
We took the fascinating tour and had to agree with Benia that it is one of the most beautiful buildings we've seen in Washington.
We picked up Sean and Will from the Metro Stop and then spent the day at the Boat Show. The boys and I toured a great number of boats while Scott shopped at the vendor stands. It was a beautiful day for it. Later Walt and Honoree took us all out to dinner in town.

For over two hours we watched the docks break up and the boats piroette up the suddenly free narrow channels. Several daring young men climbed their boats masts - without safety lines, all to the applause of the adoring audience. As the sun went down the crowds finally dispersed along with the last of the boats. Great fun as always.
|See the man up the mast?|
