Journey: Triple L Estate – Calvert Marina fueling docks – Island Hideaway, Solomons Island– Triple L Estate
We have a ‘family free’ day today. As a result, we wanted to rest, have a low-key day, and ensure we fueled up the boat. We haven’t wanted to go to the fueling dock while we had O.
When we left Triple L Estate, our gauge read that we had used a total of 59 gallons since our last fill. Upon our arrival to the fueling docks I neglected to record total gallons used prior to zeroing out the gauge. Oops. It was either 69.8 or 60.9 used … maybe.
What I found rather ‘interesting’ upon arrival at the fueling dock, the young dock hand felt a need to man-splain how to dock our boat. Although I was polite, I really wanted to tear into him. – How many boats does he own? Does he have his captains license? How many hours does he spend captaining a vessel each year? Do we look like we need man-splaining because we are women?!
We filled with a total of 64.93 gallons at a cost of $3.38/ gallon for a total cost of $220.05.
As we finished fueling I noticed Coast Guard Auxiliary pass by. No surprise due to the holiday weekend.
We met Bob and Stephanie at Island Hideaway for the afternoon. Had a great time. We then returned home for a relaxing evening.
