Journey: Triple L Estate – Calvert Marina fueling dock, Solomons – Island Hideaway, Solomons Island – Spring Cove Marina, Solomons – Triple L Estate
After a week of rain – consistently raining interspersed with high winds, lightning, and thunder – we were delightfully surprised with a sunny day. It had been forecasted as yet another rainy day, so the sun was a treat. Although the water looked rather murky, due to all the rain run-off, it was too nice of a day not to go out.
As we left Spring Cove, we were surprised to see swans near to Glen and Debbie’s pier. It has been several years since we’ve seen swans in the area. The fact that we didn’t see just one, but three large adults made us wonder if they were reestablishing themselves. Hope not.
We first went to Calvert Marina to fuel up on fuel.
Gauge read 47.6 gallons used
Filled 47.56 gallons
$3.55/gallons = $168.79
As we fueled we heard cannon fire coming from the Solomons Island Yacht Club area. When we passed by the yacht club we saw a large gathering of people, as well as a canon. The William B. Tennison sat docked at the yacht club pier. Yep, the yacht club definitely had some sort of event happening.
We actually saw quite a few non-local vessels out and about – or docked – in the Solomons area amongst the locals. Island Hideaway is a nice spot to sit and watch the coming and goings of vessels.
