Journey: Triple L Estate – Stoney’s, Broomes Island – Triple L Estate
We went to Stoney’s for our usual Friday night with the locals. Skippy and Reed were there. When Harold and Betty arrived they sat with them. Lori and I ordered food and decided to sit with Skippy, Reed, Harold, and Betty while we ate. This was nice since it gave us a chance to talk with them.
Betty was cracking us up. Prior to arrival she didn’t realize one of her fingers had red dye on it. At first she tried to hide it, but after a drink or two she happily flipped the dyed bird. Betty and Harold introduced me to a couple who live on Calvert County side of the river. According to Harold, if I ever need a lawyer in Calvert County, he was the guy to get. What I found impressive is that the wife has known Betty and Harold since she was 4 years old. I actually had a lot of fun talking with her.
We were just about to leave when Julie showed up. Earlier Tommy had said that her sister wasn’t doing well. I asked her about it and, while holding back tears, she said, “I just can’t talk about it right now.” I totally understood. We did sit and talk for a short time with them before finally leaving.
As I approached our boat a guy came over and asked if our boat was built in Brazil. I told him I didn’t know where it was built, only that it was a Seaway. He said he had noticed us coming in and it had some really nice lines.
We had a gorgeous ride home, the water was so flat it was like glass.
Time: leave 6 pm, return with the last bit of light glowing in the western point of sky
Conditions: somewhat rough going there, FLAT water going home, absolutely beautiful
Vessel: 23’ Seaway
Me, Lori, and Sophie
