Cindy and I had such a good time on the boat yesterday that we decided to take the boys to the Jacksonville Landing for lunch. As we enter the harbor and approach the Acosta Bridge, we notice that the Strauss Trunnion Bascule Bridge (rail) is down, which means there’s a train a-comin’.

The boys like waving at the engineer, who always waves back and blows the whistle (must be some sort of unwritten code among engineers…just like truck drivers).

Anyway, I turn the bow into the current to face the bridge with just enough throttle to keep us in place. Let the show begin!
