There are few secrets on a little boat.
One thing I’ve come to realize is that, when you’re together with someone 24-7 on a small boat, arranging surprise gifts and parties is a bit more challenging. Although back on land I wasn’t too bad at this sort of thing, I think that up to this point, I haven’t been too successful at it on the boat. All that changed last evening though I guess. Using Facebook instant messaging and messages whispered when Rebecca wasn’t looking, I managed to arrange for a bunch of our friends to meet us at Prickly Bay Marina’s Tiki Bar last night for a surprise birthday party. I also had Rebecca’s gift, a brand new sit-on-top kayak, waiting there for us. Rebecca tells me that she was completely surprised by both the party and the gift. With this success, I may have set the bar pretty high for next year though.
I’d like to offer a very sincere thank you to all of our friends who came out last night. Your presence made Rebecca very happy!
Note: Towing the kayak home after a night of drinking was “entertaining.”
