When everyone crowds on the bow’s deck to sun worship and revel in conversation, I retreat to the stern. I sit bundled up in a little nook facing the tail end of the boat. I have my tall can of Corona, I have my chips and salsa, I have the splashy water to my left, I have the diffused sun and salty wind on my face. I have peaceful, laid-back bliss.
