Sunday 21 January 2018 Journey: Triple L Estate, Hollywood – Calvert Marina, Solomons – Island Hideaway, Solomons Island – Triple L Estate, Hollywood I woke this morning to a light, slushy, ice glaze over the water. By noon o’clock, clouds began rolling in from the west. Early in the morning fox walked through the yard and […]
Thursday 11 January 2018 We have a gifted day of sunny and warm weather. Due to the past weeks of bitter cold, the boat had not been started for a while. We took the opportunity of warm weather, tolerable to be outside for an extended period of time, to warm up the engines. Both engines […]
Friday 18 November 2016 – Fall Ride Journey: Triple L Estate – Freshies of Hollywood – Triple L Estate Lori is just days out from having had a total knee replacement on her right knee. As a result, she has not yet recovered well enough to be on the boat. She has, however, recovered well enough […]

FRIDAY 8 APRIL 2016 Journey: Triple L Estate – Stoney’s, Broomes Island – Triple L Estate In the morning, Lori and I had to travel to Inova Hospital in Alexandria to attend a pre-knee surgery class. Afterwards we stopped at Sugar House for a mani-pedi. Lori only had a cleaning, no polish due to her […]
WEDNESDAY 26 AUGUST 2015 Journey: Triple L Estate – Solomons Regatta, Patuxent River – Triple L Estate We stayed home from random draw cornhole in order for Alan to come look at and fix the lift cables. Since the boat had to be taken off the lift and sat in the water, I decided to […]
SUNDAY 16 AUGUST 2015 Journey: Triple L Estate – Island Creek, Calvert County – Blackstone Marina, Hollywood – Triple L Estate Lori has been wanting to coordinate a raft up for a long time – and today it finally happened. I had originally proposed the Battle Creek area, hoping for fewer nettles further up river. […]
Listen to her. Now that she’s a captain she’s using all these nautical terms. Which side is port?!
Julie took it upon herself to orchestrate getting men to bare their chest in order to have their photo taken.
Nothing spectacular to report other than the usual antics with the regular locals …
“What kind of crazy person would go out on a boat in this kind of weather?”
What kind of guy chooses to go with two men vs two women?
It’s sooo much easier dropping off young, spry, boat savvy people … get close to the pier and let them jump rather than having to do a proper tie up.
We had a smooth ride on slightly rough water. Eric kept commenting about how nice the ride, and warm, inside the pilot house – “Like riding in a limousine.”
When we returned to our house, Lori drove Kathy home. As soon as Lori saw Sam she said, “Hey, we found her in this condition.”
It seems as though the only people out on the water are the watermen and us.
After yesterday’s surprise birthday party for Lori I didn’t expect her to be moving today. To my surprise she actually didn’t feel as bad as I expected.
I prepared for departure, which gave the not so subtle clue that I planned on leaving. We had no intention of waiting any longer.
I have never participated in one before, and it ended up being quite fun.
We didn’t notice while inside, but sometime during the early evening hours it became quite nasty with cold and rain. We were quite happy to have the pilot house to protect us.
