Journey: Triple L Estate – September Song, Calvert Marina – Triple L Estate

Prior to departure Lori checked the oil for each of the engines. It’s a good thing she did. She happened to notice some sort of connector dangling. She determined where it needed to connect and attached it. Hum. No clue what happened, or what the connector intended to do.

As we headed out of Cuckold Creek I noticed a boat coming in, on plane, with someone sitting on the bow, dangling their legs over the side. I pointed out how very dangerous that seemed. We would never allow something like that on that type of vessel.

As we neared Point Patience I noticed quite a few people hanging out at Myrtle Point. What a great day for a party at the beach.

 

Passing Point Patience, noticing the light breeze, I commented, “What a great day for sailing, nice breeze, pleasant weather.” We did notice quite a few sailboats out. I wondered if they belonged to some kind of group that agreed to go out for a sail.

We noticed quite a few people out sailing. I wondered if the sailing association had a Sunday afternoon regatta.

We arrived to Calvert Marina and tied up to the floating docks in front of September Song. We saw Byrne diligently cleaning his vessel’s hull … hulls?

We went up to September Song and hung out for the afternoon on the flybridge enjoying a lovely afternoon.

Leaving out of Back Creek I noticed an odd looking vessel came in that I had never seen before. It surprised me to see that it’s stern read “Traveller” with the hailing port of Solomons MD. Why have I not seen this boat before? Has it been out to see and just now returning? Coming into the Solomons Inlet I noticed another vessel approaching. It looked very top heavy to me. I wondered – did it come out of the factory like this, or is the upper deck an after market add on?

As we left Solomons we saw the DNR police dealing with a jet ski. Excellent … they were busy while we scooted along our way.

 

 

 

 

On our way home we AGAIN saw a vessel cruising along on plane with people sitting on the bow. Do these people not realize how dangerous this is? Obviously not. Unfortunately, they’ll have to learn the hard way.
