Around 4 pm we headed back out, there was a very light drizzle, and the sash lady was in. His sash is just beautiful and he chatted up the lady that made it. She was very sweet to Saulius and he gave her kiss.
We headed to the boat and it took off promptly at 5 pm. The weather cleared up just in time and became gorgeous The river current is quite strong and during one of the u-turns the boat actually hit the river bank. The views were wonderful and it was a really nice time. Saulius likes any type of moving vehicle.
On our walk home we went to the town hall square where we noticed earlier they had been setting up for some event. Turns out the Lithuanian national basketball team was there. We got to join the crowd and celebrate their world title. It was not a huge crowd but very vocal and extremely well-behaved. It was lots of families and kids and felt very safe. We got some decent pictures of some of the players. There was a hot air balloon too that was neat. We met two police officers and Saulius gave them USPP challenge coins.
Dinner was our last meal of koldunai. God how I'm going to miss being able to buy really good frozen ones at the grocery store!
We are going to start rounding up all our treasures to take home, then just relax since tomorrow we have St. Anne's church and the church heritage museum, and maybe then TV tower where there is a memorial to the people who died during the separation from the USSR.
We tried out headphones on Saulius for the DVD player and he loves them! It will be great for the plane, maybe we won't have to listen to the Sesame Street DVDs over and over and over and over...... "put down the ducky, put down the ducky, put down the ducky, put down the ducky if you want to play the saxaphone......."
And as for the headline of this blog - it refers to our last roll of toilet paper which we just started today!
I love my sash!
