Water Therapy

As you can well imagine, last week was an difficult one. But it was also a week of realizing how caring friends and family can be. I thank all of you for your thoughtful comments on the loss of my sister

Saturday afternoon, Motor Man and I had an invitation from a friend, Larry, to go out on his boat.  It was a beautiful day, and Motor Man quickly accepted the offer. He knew that I needed a little diversion from the emotions of the prior week.

We sailed out of beautiful Hampton Creek in….Hampton, Va.

Motor Man even took the wheel for awhile.

Our ride took us out briefly into the Chesapeake Bay. We shared the waterway with sailboats,

And cargo ships. (Even though I realize quite a bit of it is rust, I love all the colors in this photo.)

I think “wakes” are pretty – as long as I’m in the boat that’s making them.

 Motor Man insisted that I “drive” the boat  – at least long enough for a photo op.
