Journey: Triple L Estate – Stoney’s, Broomes Island – Triple L Estate
On our way out I noticed a large boat that had a stand-up jet ski tied alongside. I pointed out that the ski looked like it could be Carl’s. Lori suspected that the boat might belong to Joe and Karen. It looked like Rob standing on the swim platform. As we passed by, we did see that Joe sat at the helm and waved in recognition of our boat. A short distance down Cuckold Creek we saw Carl in his ski boat with quite a few people. Obviously, they were having a family fun day.
As we parked the boat, Jeff, Kari, and Henry came up in their rubber duckie to say hello. They had just come from the beach area where Henry had a chance to play and swim. They said they planned on going home and would return within a half hour or so.
Although the bar was fairly full, it seemed rather quiet, even with a band playing in the tent. We talked for a while with Ted, Ernie, Carl and Cindy. We had just paid our bill when we finally see Jeff and Kari returning… what, well over an hour later? We decided to stay for one more drink so that we could chat with them for a bit.
All afternoon I kept checking the weather radar as storms moved across the Appalachian Mountains and had the potential of rain in our area.
We then returned home. Lori flushed the engine and cleaned the filthy, dog hair ridden floor. As we cleaned the boat I noticed the sky turning quite a bit darker. Less than two hours after our return it did storm.
