Journey: Triple L Estate – Stoney’s, Broomes Island – Triple L Estate
Tonight is cornhole night – and our first journey with the temporary door fix. Although the door seems to work fine we are still THAT boat with duct tape. Yep, white trash, red neck, riff raff. Yowza, karma is a bitch sometimes.
On the way out of Cuckold Creed we noted that the motor vessel, Jenny, sat anchored at the mouth of Cuckold Creek. Although, technically, it sat outside of the main channel, its location is outrageously dangerous.
Locals don’t follow the channel, and instead travel that area without regard to the actual channel. I fear waking up one morning to hearing a news report of a boating accident when someone runs into this vessel.
Tonight we docked at the pier that juts out form the restaurant. Kurt, with the white go-fast, arrived in his friend’s boat and they docked on the other side of the pier. He grabbed his son to have him come look at our boat. He had been telling his son about our boat, saying our boat “has it all.” He asked if I would give his son a tour, which I of course did. The go-fast friends also joined us on the boat. They were actually quite impressed.
Lori brought her fish pole in order to fish with Anthony. At one point, one of the Stoney’s staff said she couldn’t fish off the pier. Lori said, “Why not? I don’t see a sign saying I can’t. Besides, you’re not suppose to throw rocks into the water, but that didn’t stop some kid from shattering our boat door while throwing rocks.
Tommy and Julie later arrived in their “new” rubber duckie. So very nice having a chance to talk with her… and Tommy.
Lori’s name was drawn for the money board – YEAAAA! And she made one bag in … EXCELLENT. One bag is better than no bags.
I was surprised to see the Boyz show up. I didn’t know they were still in Hollywood. Eric M’lady was with them. A nice treat since I haven’t seen him in a very long time.
Lori and I stayed for quite a while after the Corn Ho’s last game enjoying the company of so many friends. Ted is also up from Florida for a short visit. So nice to see him. Too bad he can’t stay for longer, but oh well, a little bit of time is better than no time together.
Towards the end of the evening, Tommy tried to talk me into going over to their house for skinny dipping in their pool. I declined at first, then said, I’m willing to be bribed – I would skinny dip in exchange for their rubber duckie. He didn’t seem willing to make that deal so we headed for home.
