Pirates Have Landed at National Harbor
Each cruise runs one-and-a-half hours with the first half-hour spent on boarding activities followed by an hour of sailing out on the Potomac River. Boarding takes place at the Capital Wheel Pier at National Harbor. The cost is $22 per person for ages 3 and up, $12 for children 2 and under. There are also group ticket rates and birthday adventures.
For adults, there are B.Y.O.G. (bring your own grog) cruises that run on Thursdays (6 and 8 p.m.), Fridays and Saturdays (6, 8 and 10 p.m.) Cost is $25 per person. The cruises feature swashbuckling fun with dancing, pirate vests and tattoos. Small coolers are welcome.
“We are delighted to be able to add this unique and fun pirate ship experience to the exceptional line-up of entertainment at National Harbor,” said Bruce Gudenberg, vice president of marketing for National Harbor. In addition to the iconic Capital Wheel, soaring more than 180 feet with views of the D.C. monuments and the National Harbor Merry-Go-Round, National Harbor provides a wide array of shops including Tanger Outlets, restaurants and night life. The National Harbor MGM Casino is scheduled to open in late 2016 as well.
“This is a walkable mini-city that has something for everyone,” added Gudenberg. “From stores for children such as Build-A-Bear and Peeps to great restaurants and a whole street, Fleet Street, of music and bars for adults, to our events that include movie nights on the waterfront, there’s a lot here to experience.”
There are a lot of activities available and yet, some visitors prefer to stroll the waterfront, or simply sit and relax and take in the spectacular sunsets. National Harbor has it all.

The Power of Patience Day Retreat with Gen Nyema
Sat. August 27, 2016 @ 10am – 5pm
In reality, most of our emotional problems are nothing more than a failure to accept things as they are — in which case it is patient acceptance, rather than attempting to change externals, that is the solution.” — Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, How to Solve Our Human Problems
Patient acceptance is often seen as a weak and passive mind, but actually, nothing could be further than the truth. Patient acceptance is a powerful mind that makes us as strong and stable as a mountain. When a mountain is struck by a thunderstorm, it remains unmoved. In the same way, regardless of what “storms” arise in our daily life, our patience protects our peace of mind. When we lack patience, we are like the pine trees lining the mountain — we are easily disturbed by the challenges we face. On the other hand, when we gain patience, we also gain the ability to remain peaceful, flexible, and clear-headed, no matter what the circumstances.
During this day retreat, participants will begin to understand what patient acceptance really is and how to remain calm and relaxed in even the most challenging situations.

As part of NKF-MD’s mission of early detection and early intervention, this free screening will identify early markers for high blood pressure, diabetes and kidney disease. No appointments are needed for the screening and any adult can participate.
Lasting about 20 minutes, the screening includes blood pressure and weight checks, as well as counseling with a doctor and dietician. Additionally, blood tests may be given to those needing to have their blood sugar and kidney function checked. For more information, call NKF-MD at 443-322-0375 or visit www.kidneymd.org.
Overall, kidney disease affects 26 million people – that’s one in nine Marylanders. One in three American adults – 73 million people – are at risk for kidney disease, and the risk increases to one in two over the course of a lifetime.
Most people affected do not realize it until the condition has progressed. In fact, 25 percent of the 1,229 people screened last year by NKF-MD demonstrated significant results.
