She said "yes!"

See that beautiful ring in the foreground?  It now belongs to that beautiful smile in the background by way of a few generations on his side of the family.  I had the pleasure and privilege of helping the groom-to-be plan his marriage proposal this weekend aboard s/v Carodon.  He was certain he wanted to take her somewhere they had never been so out the gate into open ocean we went and it was a perfectly beautiful day until... she got quite seasick and Uh-oh!  I had to head for calmer waters and break out some ginger ale, but then behind yellow bluff we found a gloriously calm and placid spot and she came back to life so he popped the question and she burst into tears of joy.  Out came the champagne on ice stashed down below that we managed to hide from her and the rest of the day was intensely beautiful.  Such a privilege to be part of this unforgettable and emotional moment!
