Mary spent last Saturday evening in a classroom taking the ASA 201 written test, so our friends Andy and Jayne were kind enough to invite me along on a sunset cruise.
All the usual suspects were aboard.
And I got to a chance to bring along my friends Chris and RJ, who have never done much sailing.
We were making our way down the channel when we noticed several dolphins cruising along with a sailboat not too far from us.
And soon they were on their way over to say hello to Hippokampos as well.
As we made our way towards the ship channel they dropped back. This time of year they seem to spend more time in the upper bay.
Soon the sun was dropping towards the horizon. It never ceases to amaze me how fast it moves once it starts setting.
And just as the sun disappeared somewhere over there behind the Kemah Boardwalk, the wind picked up, so we turned the boat around and made another lap around the bay in the dark.
