We went out last night for dinner and sailing. It was probably the most memorable outing we've had, due to several unusual events. Rather than write a travelogue, I'll just list the bullets:
- Air temp was 95 but humidity was unusually low for Baltimore, so it was very comfortable, with a nice breeze
- Winds were favorable for family sailing and eating dinner underway
- We saw multiple dolphins! This was in the mouth of the Patapsco river, which flows from Baltimore Harbor into the northern half of the Chesapeake
- After sailing we anchored out and swam while watching a beautiful sunset. Water temp was perfect for swimming
- As the sun set, the full moon rose on the opposite side. Big and orange! And this was a blue moon too (second full moon in a calendar month)
- Here's the kicker: while we all gawked at the moon, a very bright and long-lasting shooting star fell down right beside it, glowing a fiery green!
I told my wife I should get my fishing gear out, because I'm sure I would have caught a 36-inch striper!
Have a great weekend everyone...
(Note: This post may be a bit of an eye-roller for people who are "out there," but I live in Baltimore for god's sake!)
