Why the port side?

That was easy.  The cake fellow was right handed and it just made sense when facing another ship, it would be left side you attacked (or wrote on).


My son finally came out.  He and his friend were thrilled to get their picture made with the normal looking fellow who throws bakery goods.  Honestly, I think he was more thrilled to stand towards the end of the line and watch the fellow “sign autographs.”

So if you’re turning 51, just be thankful and stand close by on the sidewalk.
