Default Your best day..when you're not cruising

Yes, of course, the BEST days are cruising days, but when you're on land what's the best day. Here's mine:

Sitting in our favorite seats in center field on a hot summer day at Turner Field watching the Braves. I have an ice cold beer in one hand, a hot dog in the other, peanuts waiting in a bag at my feet and my son and husband wearing their Braves hats (my husband's is in Hebrew, which gets lots of looks!) and arguing a play........Baseball and beer - does it get much better?

Default Re: Your best day..when you're not cruising

I think my best day would be sitting on the beach in Cape Cod with my boyfriend and our three dogs. Watching them play in the water and run around.

Second place I think would be close to your Dorothy but at Fenway watching the Red Soxs!!! (of course beer and hot dod also!!)

A good day= See two grandchildren and one daughter
A great day = See all four grandchildren and two daughters
Outstanding day= all four grandchildren and three daughters all at the same time
A rare and cherished day= a totally quiet day at home with no visitors, no place to go and nothing to do; with Gram always somewhere close. (that last one usually translates to being a "sea Day")

A warm, sunny, windless day on the golf course with good friends, then having Mrs. Kuki and the other wives meeting us at the club for dinner on the patio.

Saturday brunch dates with my father. He's so cute... he still will never let me buy.

Having a bunch of friends over on a beautiful summer day...sitting on the patio, and grilling steaks on the bar-b-q.

Any days my boys don't need money <G>

An evening of figure skating at Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, CA . . .

An afternoon at Corona del Mar State Beach, CA . . . both of these with my dearly beloved when his ribs have healed.

while I enjoy going to the Ted to see the Braves, my best land days are cruising down the Blue Ridge Parkway on my Harley.

Default Re: Your best day..when you're not cruising

A hot summer day in my mom's backyard pool, with no kids splashing around, just me on an air mattress, a drink at the poolside and a BBQ for dinner. When does this happen? Never!

Thirty miles offshore in my boat, with no land in sight, lines down and good buddies on board, then hearing a screeching reel singing away as a huge grouper takes the bait and runs for a hole. The sound system is cranked up and some good old rock and roll is playing. A cooler full of beer and plenty of sun.

That's second place to me and Mrs.Thomas cuddled on the sofa with no T.V. or radio.

Regards,
Thomas

Default Re: Your best day..when you're not cruising

When I turn on a transceiver and found out there's a Morse contest, or a Morse signal from a rare country. Someday, I hope to make it possible to combine that with cruising.
Radio regulations what they are, that's only likely to happen on an American registered ship like Pride of America. The paperwork for the others is either non-existent or too intimidating.


I may dwell on the land, but I live at sea!

Steve



Sensation 2/03 I disembarked, but never really left the ship.
Enchantment 9/03 Just had to go back.
Inspiration 3/04 Just have to go back again, and again, and again...
Sensation 04/05 And again!

The anticipation of seeing your sisters, of knowing there will be quiet moments when all the kids are asleep, of unrushed talks in the swing on the back porch, of laughter of days long ago, of knowing all your family is safe & happy & you're grateful for that. But the best is knowing that some day soon you'll be on the ocean again & words just can't describe how that feels.

Dinner for four or six people, preferably close friends with common interests, at home with ample good food in courses, with great wine to go with. It doesn't get better than that I.M.H.O.

Every Thursday going to Baton Rouge to pick up hubby's check and passing right in front of TIGER STADIUM and thinking "wow we are national champions."
