► Explorations along the Water: July 13, 2012

Commuting along Cuckold CreekFriday 13 July 2012

Journey I: Triple L Estate – (J’s Creek) – Hungerford Creek – Triple L Estate

Time: 10:15 am – 11:30 am

Vessel: 18’ Simmons Sea Skiff replicaConditions: partly cloudy, light breeze

We went out for a morning ride since she hasn’t been out on the water for a while. We first went into the back creek where J Scarab lives. Again, we didn’t see any power boats at his dock. I wonder if he still has his go-fast.

Afterwards, we shot across the Patuxent River to explore yet another little creek, Hungerford Creek. Again, a small, narrow opening to a body of water that is a great deal larger than appears.

It’s interesting to see what is tucked in these back water areas.
