go crimson

My husband and I went up to Red Top in Gales Ferry, Connecticut last weekend for the 150th Harvard-Yale Regatta. The Race is the oldest intercollegiate sporting event in the United States. Lots of history and of course, the long-standing rivalry between the two schools. There was an alumni row and celebratory dinner the day before the big race, both of which we really enjoyed. My husband caught up with old friends and I made new ones. It was the perfect weekend (except for Harvard’s loss the following day, only the second time in the twenty-first century).

Remembering Harry Parker, the legendary Harvard coach for 51 years. The 44-7 was his impressive record in the Harvard-Yale regatta.

A peek inside the boathouse. Look at all the rowing machines!

Cocktail hour & dinner al fresco at the Coast Guard Academy on the Thames River. Although I was wearing 4-inch wedges, I was constantly looking up the entire evening. Crew men are tall!

Happy Friday to you!
