It was a warm fall afternoon with blue skies and puffy white clouds. This was a wonderful, relaxing interlude made special by Charlie our gondolier, and the wonderful musician playing soft guitar music as we toured along the Charles River.

I used the message in a bottle to propose to my girlfriend. The music, full moon, and city lights were the perfect backdrop to this special moment! A great story for beginning our life together..
