Journey: Triple L Estate – Stoney’s, Broomes Island – Triple L Estate

We went fairly early to Stoney’s, leaving home at around 5 or so. One very nice thing, as we slowly cruised out of our cove, Lori pulled out her tool box and went to work repairing some snaps. Most excellent.

I knew we’d be earlier than the usual regulars but I thought it would be nice to have a chance to chat with Jeannie. Earlier this week she had asked to use one of my photos from last year’s docking contest to use in advertising this year’s event. She, and her staff, have yet to decide which photo to use, but it will be in the Calvert County Town Crier. In exchange for the use of the photo, I asked for a VIP pass during the contest – not to sit, but simply to have a more clear shot for photographs. She told us she has already reserved our “regular” docking contest seats for us when she prepared the seating chart a few months ago. That’s nice that she thought of us and wanted to make sure we had our prime seats.

It ended up that most of the locals we usually talk with were all otherwise engaged. Ted went to a Nats game with his aunt, Tommy and Julie had dinner plans in Charles County, and Jeff’s son had a la cross game in La Plata. Jeannie had booked live entertainment for the evening, a musician from La Plata called Mike Mead. We had a lovely dinner and headed home fairly early. It was nice to be home, have the boat flushed and covered, all before sunset.
