Happy Birthday Ed

Goodbye my dear friend, you will be sorely missed by me and many others.

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. (Gandhi)

This is how Ed lived his life. Sadly tomorrow came for him. He left on the day he arrived 63 years later. The world is now a little more empty for it, as am I.

LD is not a fan of loud explosions (thunder, fireworks, etc.) and hid out in the cabin crouched tightly in the vee berth even though we gave him some over the counter anxiety stuff (I think it helped some, but not totally).

Earlier in the day, there was a boat parade on the river with maybe a dozen or so boats parcipating. We were positioned across from the judges station.
The Look of love! I took this picture while we were out cruising for the day. Looks like they needed to find a quiet spot to complete their amorous activity. After a short period of time, they disengaged and flew away. Ahh to be young and passionate with no worries.

While this was a holiday weekend, some had to work and not everyone had the luxury to take time off to celebrate. Here are but a couple:
