On the Pier

Phoned my mom a few days after this to say hello, and she asked how I enjoyed the ride on the pier. How'd she know? I had my new mobile phone in my pocket, and the keylock wasn't on. Must have bumped some buttons, and when she answered her phone in Northern California, the first thing she heard was screaming. Was this a goodbye call from someone in a disaster? Then she heard music and the laughter, and me shouting to Ellie, "We're over the water! Look, we're way up over the water!"
