After the successful outing to the Newport Boat Show, we decided to try another Boat Event... this time focused on the Commercial Boats. The Working Waterfront Festival is a yearly event held in nearby New Bedford (America's largest commercial port) and focuses on the commercial fishing industry. It was a gorgeous day, perfectly fall... but a wonderful day to be next to the water. I mean, just look at the sky...
First stop was the food tent where we got some Portuguese food from one of the local restaurants that my husband is a fan of. (As am I now!) It was Spencer's first experience with Portuguese food... and to say it was a hit was an understatement:
[Frantically signing "more"...]
Then we headed out to check out the boats. First stop, the scallop boat where Grandpa was working. Spencer scored a t-shirt from Grandpa, and posed for some pictures with him:
Then we took a little tour around the very big-yet-small boat. Have you ever been on a commercial fishing boat?! Those living quarters are just a wee bit tight. I can't even imagine adding in a rough sea... I was green just thinking about it.
Then we walked around and looked at the other boats... one of us had the best ride of all...the baby carrier:
A couple more shots...
We asked Spencer what he thought, and he said it was one heck of a good time:
[Dad... all the artsy shots are for you - enjoy!]
