That's the song I've been singing all weekend! After this week's visit by the Navy to our center, I had the chance to go to the city to enjoy some Navy-inspired festivities over the weekend.
Sharon and I decided to go on Friday night to hear 'Top Brass' perform again, this time with a couple Mozambican bands who were so cool. We are definitely looking for where and when we can keep enjoying those bands here locally.
Then we headed over to the Marine Guard House (that where the Marines who guard the Embassy live) for a potluck in honor of the sailors that was from 3-12. We were some of the last people there, I think we left just before midnight!
Although there are no photos to prove it, I have to brag a little to say I was part of two teams, once with Melissa and once with Jeff, who played foosball most of the evening. I think we must have played about 12 games and only lost once, and then only by one point. I loved it! But my wrist is still hurting today!
While we were there, one of the Embassy staff came and asked if Sharon and I would like to take a tour of the two Navy ships on Saturday. Of course we would! So we got to tour the USS Nicholas and the HSV-2 Swift. It was fun to see some of the sailors who had served at our center on Wednesday or were at the potluck the night before in their uniforms and doing their jobs!
This is the Swift, isn't it cool looking? It's a re-designed ferry! I may have over simplified that but that's what I got out of the tour.
Defending the Flag and all it stands for!
Thanks sailors for serving your country and the world!
