4615 towingWe had invited Bob and Stephanie over for dinner and I offered to pick them up on the boat so they could see where we live by water. Also, I would almost always choose traveling by boat than by car.

Since I was a bit earlier than expected, and was in the neighborhood, I decided to top up on fuel. I then headed over to September Song.

As we rounded the tip of Solomons Island we saw the Dee of St. Mary’s heading up river under sail. WAAAYYY COOOLLLL!!!! A beautiful site indeed.

Lori prepared a delightful meal.

Late in the evening Jordan and I took Bob and Stephanie back to September Song. Jordan captained the entire way. He was a bit nervous having to dock between the large NOAA vessel and the HUGE September Song. I knew he’d do fine and let Bob provide encouragement and/or advice: “Our motto is – Slow, Slower, and Stop.”

I’m glad Jordan captained because the fluorescing jellies were out. I rarely get to enjoy this as I’m looking forward while at the helm. As we approached the bridge I noticed some VERY BRIGHT lights near the apex. I wondered if perhaps there was an accident. Jordan asked, “Is today the 17th?” “Yes.” “Then those lights are for bridge inspection.”
