We brought Interlude to their dock, and offered tours to the group. We're posing on the bow for pictures. Jody and Bill agree that the boat looks great at their dock. Go for it, guys!
John and Pat Walsh with Jan. John Walsh is the new Chief Operating Officer of Sterling Research and the man in whom we're entrusting our company during our sabbatical. Pat and John co-sponsored the bon voyage party with the Burnettes.
The group had a wonderful cake made with a likeness of the Interlude, an outline of our trip and an image of our "personal signal" (our burgee). That's a lot to get on a cake.
Here's a closer view of the cake. The group also had a full-sized burgee made for us to fly from the boat. Our burgee is shown at the right on the cake. The globe symbolizes our love of travel. The two gold rings symbolize our marriage. The stylized script "L" has a dual meaning--representing "L" for Lisa, and representing the symbol for British sterling--the trade mark for our company, Sterling Research. The candy boats are a close representation of Interlude.
