Journey: Triple L Estate – Charles Street Brasserie, Solomons Island – Triple L Estate
We had made arrangements to meet Julie for dinner since I haven’t seen her since … April? March? Too long, that is for sure. As a change of pace I recommended dinner at Charles Street Brasserie.
Although we had a sunny day, it was also quite windy and rather rough. Fortunately, inside the Solomons’ harbor area we encountered a bit less rough conditions allowing for docking event with little to no extra effort.
Anchored near to Charles Street Brasserie sat a sailboat from Seattle, Washington. That’s a long distance to travel. I wondered if they had actually sailed it around to the east coast themselves, or if they had it shipped. Also, having just returned from Washington and seeing the beauty of Seattle, Puget Sound, San Juan Islands, and the northwest peninsula makes me wonder WHY they would leave Washington. Had I seen them on deck I likely would have swung near to them to chat and ask questions.
While talking with Julie, our neighbors walked in to meet their youngest son and his wife. If it hadn’t been for the neighbors, I never would have recognized the son. They were surprised we had come over by boat due to the rough water conditions.
We had a lovely dinner with Julie and then returned home.
