A weekend to remember

September 10th was Carl's birthday. We went on a tour of the Potomac River on the restored 105-year-old skipjack Minnie V. The Minnie V was originally an oyster-dredging boat built in 1906. There are fewer a 100 skipjacks left in the world and only two working as an oyster boat in the Chesapeake Bay.

The weather was nice after the week of drenching rain. The sail went up and we cruised along the Potomac for an hour and a half.

I want a boat! Well, probably not a 105-year-old sailboat with no engine, but nothing beats bing on the water with a gentle breeze on your face...

It was such a simple, enjoyable afternoon.

Sunday was another story altogether.

I went to my first NFL game. Baltimore Ravens vs Pittsburgh Steelers at the M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

It was quite an experience. And being the tenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, there were moments to remember too.

Well I could not bring my knitting in (too big a bag and needles). I know next to nothing about football. It was first so hot we all got sunburned, then we were drenched by the rain. We were rooting for the Steelers who had the worst performance ever and were trounced.

We had a blast!

It was the funnest weekend ever!
