Today was the most beautiful day of the year.
It might have been the most fantastic day of the decade. Or the entire Cenozoic Era.
The only Westporters not outside were dead. Thousands of folks swarmed the beach — and hundreds more were on the water.
Which makes this scene so puzzling:
At 2 pm, the marina was filled with boats that were not going anywhere.
They are notoriously expensive and time-consuming. (“You don’t own a boat,” the saying goes. “It owns you.”)
So if all those people didn’t want to take their boats out on the most beautiful day in the history of the galaxy — well, when do they use them?
