Matt’s step-brother, N, and his family, are in the Washington DC area on holiday. Matt invited them down to Southern Maryland and we arranged to meet them at Island HideAway. Although it was fairly windy out, it wasn’t nearly as rough as I expected. Since we had a nice sunny day we unwrapped the upper helm from which to captain.9353-girls

 

We, as usual, had a lovely meal at Island HideAway. We then invited the family for a boat ride. Lori and I had brought along some extra, appropriate, life vests to accommodate the family. They quickly accepted once they knew the kids would have vests.

We first went out to Drum Point and a bit into the Chesapeake Bay. The two young girls sat on the upper helm with me. We then circled around and headed to our house. We hung out at our house for a bit while they relaxed and had a drink. We fitted the youngest with a slightly smaller vest in order to be a bit more snug.

Impressive sized vessel. It calls Telluride, CO its home port. Must be a very interesting route to bring the vessel from Telluride to Maryland, and back again.
