Journey: Triple L Estate – Hidden Harbour, Solomons – Solomons Yachting Center, Solomons – Stoney’s, Broomes Island – Triple L Estate
This morning we fixed both the port and starboard navigation lights. Lori spoke with Annapolis Yacht Sales and we now think the air-conditioning is not broken. Instead we suspect we didn’t set the temperature low enough which meant the water stopped running through the system. To test this theory we set the temp at 68˚F. This seemed to work as the water kept flowing.
We agreed to meet the Boyz for lunch. Lori suggested Hidden Harbour since we’ve only had breakfast there and wanted to try their lunch menu. I worried that the Boyz would hate it, simply because it is a bit of a shack … judging a book by the cover.
Although we had a hot and sunny day, we found a pleasant spot in the shad on their outside deck. Both of the Boyz loved their meals and said they would definitely return to order the same thing again.
While sitting there we enjoyed watching the boats going by, including Dee of St. Mary’s which we don’t often see. Unfortunately, Dee of St. Mary’s needed to be towed back to port. Makes for a good story for those tourists aboard.
After lunch we both stopped at Solomons Yachting Center to fuel. As we departed the fueling dock we saw a nice sized Sea Ray with three guys on board. Lori immediately labeled them as ‘family’. Their transom showed Washington DC as their home port. They were intrigued by our vessel so we floated near to each other for a bit chit-chatting with them.
We also saw a large vessel docked at the yacht club. We swung around to take a closer look and saw their hailing port listed as London. We noticed a fellow standing on the aft deck so we asked if it was London, UK or London some other place. He answered – London, UK.
Afterwards we then cruised up to Broomes Island for an afternoon cocktail. We ended up staying a bit longer than expected, but that’s what happens when you’re having fun.
