Sam, Kathy, Lori and I went to Solomons Island for the pre-opening of Charles Street Brassier. The day had started out quite overcast with dark clouds. I worried we might be racing between storms.

Charles Street ended up being really good. 5887 wm b tennysonInstead of giant single servings their pre-opening offer was 3 tapas for $15. The tapa servings included a lot of food, rather than the usual small plates. I was happy to see their menu was more than a cookie-cutter seafood menu that most waterfront restaurants put together.

After lunch we went for a ride up past the old Captain’s Table to show them the new Angler’s restaurant. Since we were in the neighborhood we stopped at Spring Cove to top up on fuel. By this time the heavy cloud cover began to break up and blue sky 5916 bridge cloudsstarted to peek through. Since it looked as though the day would clear we decided to go up to Bromes. We asked Sam and Kathy if they wanted to join us but they declined.

We returned to Triple L to drop them off, change into shorts, and pick up Sophie. During that time the neighbor zipped into our creek on a small dinghy to show off his 8-hp motor. Once he left we departed for 5919 skyBroomes.

When we entered Spring Cove we saw L’s boat at the end of the pier so we decided to pull in to see what Buzz wanted. We found out that it must have been an accidental butt-dial. We ended up staying at their house talking with them for a few hours before finally going home.
