Those ones, those markers those boats are in front of?
Captain Vancouver, BlackBeard
Wars and commerce, silver and gold
New lands and exotic everything
Endless blue skies, flapping sails and a multitude of flags
Lines of people trooping off the booze cruisers going for their own
Two hour tour
"Say behind the markers!"
A brave rower
(Not behind the markers)
A red rescue boat giving us wake
(Did I mention the endless, blue, shrieking, cloud filled sky)
"Whose flag is that? Be careful of that door!
Put your camera strap around your neck.
Genuine laughter at a corny joke
Low grunts when a speedboat cuts too close
Short lessons easily learned
Long lessons still in the making
Time to go home
Hundreds of years
History, written and exploding around us
All wrapped up In a two hour tour
