Sunday evening boat christening

This past Sunday, we were invited along with others in the marina to participate in a boat christening, also known as an excuse to party. We had our own boat christening 2-1/2 years ago at Cayo Costa and it’s always a fun experience. Ned and Beth actually bought their boat 3 years ago and just now changed the name of it. As Ned says, “we don’t like to rush into things.” The 36′ sundeck vessel was previously named Mer Soliel and they changed the name to Albright at Sea. The christening was led by Ned as he spoke and offered champagne to appease King Neptune. Afterward, there were toasts and desserts and music. It was such a fun evening!

We had a fantastic dinner at Mary Kay’s before the christening
