4 June 2009One of the customs of Rose Festival Fleet week is the Officers Reception on the evening that the ships arrive in Portland. This was the second opportunity that I had to attend the reception, the officers truly were ladies and gentlemen, we had a wonderful time and were treated like royalty. I hear that there was much revelry until the wee hours but the beauty queens needed their beauty sleep, to check on their babies, and get home to their hubbies. And so we left the sailors to navigate their way around Portland on their own.
