At The Bridge

We got up at the crack of dawn to get on our way. However, the big hold up for the day is our bridge tender. He thinks it is too foggy to open the bridge. What do you think?

So, it used to be that boats could be trusted to travel in bad weather. I guess those days are gone. So we sit and play at keeping stations. Mike has threatened to turn off the engines to check the oil. He thinks that will motivate the bridge tender. Carol pointed out that we might end up on the banks of the canal. Only, as usual, she said it more politely. She said, "I would prefer that you NOT turn off the engines at this time." She did use her best teacher voice- the one that warns you of dire consequences. Mike did not turn off the engines. And still we wait.
