Journey: Triple L Estate – Calvert Marina, Solomnos – Triple L Estate
We went over to Calvert Marina to visit with Bob and Stephanie on September Song. They will be leaving the area early tomorrow and I thought it would be nice to go say goodbye.
En route we saw a gorgeous wood, Chris Craft/ Hacker Craft boat going down river. I thought it might be the same boat we saw yesterday at Stoney’s. It ended up being a different boat by the name of “Seldom Seen”. Such a lovely boat.
As we sat there we noted that the base seemed to be particularly active this evening. Oh yes, can you say Syria? Had I not had plans, I probably would have just sat out in the river and watched all the different aircraft going in and out of the base.
Once we finally went home I was surprised at how low many of the aircraft were flying. At one point I almost expected people to jump out of a helicopter into the water. As we approached the bridge I noticed this funky vessel heading up river. It looked more like a research vessel rather than a pleasure craft but I couldn’t see any markings indicating that it was affiliated with any research organization. It almost looked like a tank on the water.
Time: 4:45 pm – 7:15 pm
Conditions: nice and sunny
Vessel: 23’ Seaway fishing boat
