Yesterday we (Door into Summer) and I went over to David and Leigh's home (Bomba Shack.) We were invited to participate in the annual commissioning ceremony for their local yacht club.
The event started with a parade of boats and blessing of the fleet. We sat on the bridge deck of the of their new trawler while the fleet paraded by and was blessed by multiple members of the local religious establishment. This was followed by the commissioning ceremony itself including reading of the roll and ringing the bell for those current and former members who had passed in the previous year.
We then went back to the house for a wonderful brunch.
In the evening we got to watch David do one of his favorite things, sing barbershop at a local concert.
All in all a fun day.
