► The Sky is Falling: May 27, 2016

FRIDAY 27 MAY 2016 In the morning, Lori and I drove to Hallowing Point DNR, Prince Frederick (by land), to get jetski registration renewal. Lori dropped be at the boat ramp area to walk Sophie while she went to the building. As she entered the foyer, the drop-ceiling fell on her and another lady. The […]

► Less than 24 Hours: March 27, 2016

SUNDAY 27 MARCH 2016 Journey: Triple L Estate – Stoney’s, Broomes Island – Triple L Estate I’ve been in the country less than 24 hours and happily dropped the boat in the water in order to head up to Broomes Island. Although the outside bar remains closed, not surprising due to the cool weather, we […]

► Regatta Maryland Style: August 26, 2015

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. […]

► Captaining a Yacht: June 24, 2015

Listen to her. Now that she’s a captain she’s using all these nautical terms. Which side is port?!

► Show Us Your Tatas: May 31, 2015

Julie took it upon herself to orchestrate getting men to bare their chest in order to have their photo taken.

► A Bit of Overkill: May 29, 2015

Nothing spectacular to report other than the usual antics with the regular locals …

► Unable to Extricate Himself: May 10, 2015

Somehow he ended up being pushed to shore between the restaurant and the pier. Unable to extricate himself from this predicament he ended up being towed out by a jet-ski!

► Like Glass: March 27, 2015

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.

► Family Days: March 21, 2015

As we made our way to the only available seats at the end of the bar, a woman stood up and greeted us

► Never Ending Birthday: March 15, 2015

Once we finally returned to Island Time Lori and I quickly changed back into our boating clothes, I walked a very inebriated Jeannie out to Katy’s jeep,

► The Watermen and Us: January 23, 2015

It seems as though the only people out on the water are the watermen and us.

► Returning to the Scene: January 19, 2015

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.

► The Waiting Game: December 26, 2014

I prepared for departure, which gave the not so subtle clue that I planned on leaving. We had no intention of waiting any longer.

► Soft Opening: December 1, 2014

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.

► Ho’s before Bro’s: November 30, 2014

we went over to their house for pre-Stoney’s drinks

► Superstars: November 29, 2014

What?! Did they see us coming and lock the door?

► Bay Baby: October 31, 2014

At one point, however, she actually jumped onto the bow hatch. That scared us because we didn’t know if she’d slip or jump. I quickly, but gently, slowed down hoping that she wouldn’t fall in before we could get to her.

► Neighborly: October 24, 2014

It amazes me that people can’t build a new house so close to shore but they can do this MASSIVE earth works for the Fueling station. It just goes to show – it’s not about the environment it’s about the money.
