My younger son, Zachary, completed his initial training in the Coast Guard this past week and so B and I traveled up to [[wiki:Cape May, New Jersey]] for the graduation ceremony. The weather was nice although a little chilly and we had a good time crossing over the Delaware Bay on the [[wiki:Cape May-Lewes Ferry]]. We stayed at the Congress Hall Hotel . Very old, very nice, possibly a few ghosts adding to the ambience. And I took some photos. Here you can see:
Zachary and Amanda happy to see each other once again. The telephone area in barracks where the recruits were allowed to make phone calls once or twice. The desk where Zach and his buddies would stand at attention for hours at a time. And then there are photos of the crossing on the ferry. And a few shots of the hotel. And maybe a few other things I’m not remembering at the moment. Anyway, it was a fun time and so I have enlisted Ray Charles to sing about it.
