So....today we decided to play "tourist" and use the free tickets we worked so hard for. We took an 11:30 Harbor Cruise first.

We had a few minutes to wait for our horse drawn tour so we walked around through the stable areas looking at the horses and mules relaxing after their shifts.
Meet Jake. He was our bomb proof guide for the next hour. Calmly plodding along the streets, stopping at red lights, turning where he was told and stopping at scenic points along the route. Gee Jake, Haw Jack, Ho Jake, Step up Jake. What a solid citizen he was.
We got back to Beluga about 4:30, just in time for a pleasant happy hour with the Lowes (Steve and MonaLisa). We were able to sit outside and enjoy the last of the warm afternoon. They shared some of their delicious Vermont cheese.
I have lots of pictures of our tour this afternoon, but the wind is kicking up outside and the internet is acting a bit wonky so I'll share them with you tomorrow.
