a little quilting, reading, and an occasional cookie

Last week we had PH's brother and sister-in-law here for a few days visiting. We decided to do something very big lake, very ....HERE. So we booked a ride on the Friends Goodwill, a merchant ship turned War of 1812 warship here on Lake Michigan. Friends Goodwill is permanently moored here but travels Lake Michigan for events, like this week it is in Mackinac (tip of the state) for a re-enactment of the taking of the ship 200 years ago by the British.
We had a picture perfect calm day for sailing...thank goodness! But it was H O T
There isn't much in the way of seating because the sailors were working, not lounging. I asked Patient Husband if he was holding on or doing something to help. He said he was told to hold this line so he thought he was helping.
