Bat Mitzvah on the Hudson

Monday, June 16th, I found myself boarding a boat in Brooklyn heading out for a Bat Mitzvah reception party.   Slowly people clambered on and after a few minutes we set off.   Soon after we left the dock, we were hit by waves, not massive waves, but big enough that people looked like they were under the influence when they tried walking.  It stayed this way until we passed under the Verrazano Bridge where we were sheltered from the ocean by Brooklyn.
