Sunset Cruise


Sunset panorama from the Island Caper – captured by Jim White

It was a night to remember!

The forecast was for rain Friday night, but it held off until after the cruise. It actually gave new meaning to the phrase, “Calm before the storm” as a windstorm from hell swept in 12 hours later and left over 10,000 Whatcom County residents without power. From 6:30- 8:30 we laughed, hugged, ate, drank and caught up with old friends – some of whom we hadn’t seen in decades! As we disembarked at 8:30, the first of the showers blew in but by 9:00 we were either safely home, or happily ensconced at Giusseppi’s Al Puerto where we  took over the bar and half the dining room to continue with our celebrations of being together again.
