Thanks upon thanks, John –
As I dare say you’ve heard, the cruise started out under a cloud – quite literally – but turned into a thorough success and delight. At stated start time it was overcast, blustery and Accuweather was predicting rain within minutes. The Captain let no one board.
Then as the crowd agitated, it began to clear – first from the south, then from the west. The Captain allowed boarding. To universal relief the first act on board was refreshments. We waited a while longer, then set out into a brightening sky. The balance of the cruise turned out as planned – just three quarters of an hour delayed. The setting sun kissed Liberty’s torch. La Marseillaise rang out. And everyone went home pleased.
