Journey: Triple L Estate – Solomons area – Back Creek and Mill Creek, Calvert County – Mill Creek, St. Mary’s County – Triple L Estate
Although I appreciate the beautiful weather, I wish we had had this on Friday, or even yesterday, when we had the grandbaby. I SO wanted to take her out on the boat to get her accustomed to boat life. BUT NOOOO – Friday and Saturday consisted of raining, raining, raining, cool and cold with DEPP dark sky accompanied by a BRISK wind.
Having a nice day we first cleaned the tilt of the motors, and the motors themselves, using the floating dock. Afterwards, we then went out for a relaxing cruise along the finger creeks off of Solomons Island area. We enjoyed looking at the various houses, critiquing various designs … too many steps, not enough windows facing the water view, etc.
We were surprised at the number of covered slips … oh how nice it would be to have a covered slip. Not all slips stood in great condition, but at least they had one and that’s a major bonus.
Kayakers also occupied the back waters, which I had to avoid. However, it seemed as though the kayakers were coming after us. I would maneuver to avoid them, the red marker, and the shallow area – which each maneuver I did the kayakers made a change in such a way that they AGAIN would be in my way. Having the wind pushing us around didn’t help either.
Along the way we dropped anchor to enjoy a late lunch on the boat. We didn’t stay anchored for long due to the very windy conditions it seemed as though our anchor wasn’t holding.
Heading home it remained windy, even in our cove, which made for a VERY UGLY docking. The wind blew us sideways, pushed us against the outer piling, forcing me to pivot us around in order to get into our slip.
