|Wickford Harbor storm clouds|
No matter the weather, Bob Preston is happiest when hanging out on his boat. I tagged along for my first adventure on Family Ties 2!
Bob invited some work colleagues for a tour of
Newport harbor, but as we were
departing the dark clouds started moving in. We also realized we the same ratio
of men and woman as “Gilligan’s Island”, some
laughter soon followed as we decided who would be the skipper, MaryAnn and
Ginger…… Not to worry, Bob reassured us that the trip would be uneventful !
Everyone took turns sitting next to Bob in the captains chair to get the lowdown on how he was steering the boat. Bob said "he was hardlydoing anything but following his instruments", which by the way looked like an very complicated arrangement of pretty screens!
Family Ties coasted through
Bay effortlessly as we enjoyed some pizza and cold beer. Even with
the rain you could still sense Bob’s passion for sharing his boat and love for
the water. Not a bad way to spend an evening, thanks for getting us back to
Wickford safely J
