That's what you call a perfect day. No one to bug ya. As for the wife's comment, she means the weather was not good and you/her should not be going out. I say you got lucky. If the quiet gets to you just turn on the VHF and enjoy the chit-chat of the boats not in sight.
I had the VHF on, hand-held only and their was only about three words for the whole 4 hours.
