In the morning Lori put the paddleboard in the water in order to scrub the scum line off our boat. People see our boat and say, “I can’t believe you have the scum line.” Jeeezzz, give us a break. We’ve only had the boat a few days and have already put more hours on it than most people will see all season.
Shortly after leaving Cuckold Creek we noticed a yahoo boater coming awfully close to us. At first Lori thought it was simply another looky-loo wanting a closer look at our boat but then realized it was the Boyz. They had come down to meet us in order to take some photos of our boat underway which was nice of them to do for us.
We then headed up to Vera’s. They all enjoyed their meals. Mine was ok. I’m rarely thrilled with any menu of a restaurant on the water. We sat on the balcony point which offers a lovely view of St. Leonard’s Creek. Although a bikini contest was scheduled for the afternoon, it seemed very quiet.
While at Vera’s we noticed a really cool pontoon boat pull into a slip with a fancy wet bar in the aft area, complete with hanging wine glasses. Impressive. Also impressive is seeing how people can be so inept in properly securing their boat at the dock… like the bozo whose boat was floating under the pier. If the tide came in either the boat gets “sunk” or the pier gets jacked up.
When we returned to our boats we noticed that Buzz and Carol’s son, Lance, had pulled into the slip next to the Boyz. We talked with him for a bit and he asked for a tour of our boat, which we provided. Funny how even people with large vessels want to see our boat.
After Vera’s Lori and I headed to Julie’s house. She had invited us over to meet a friend of hers who planned on coming down for the evening. We sat by the pool chatting for a few hours. We then offered to take them with us, by boat, to Stoney’s. When the golf cart wouldn’t start Julie accepted our offer.
