All day, we had parties of 5+ folks sailing with their family or friends. While boarding and underway, I asked some of these groups, “Are you all celebrating something?” It made me happy to see the shrugs and smiles, and hear some excellent responses: “Nah, just a Sunday.” “Hanging out with the family.” “Um, summer?” (followed by the unspoken facial expression ‘duh.’) –>That kid got me pretty good
We had a racer aboard that drove in from Ontario, killing the day with the Chesapeake Bay. He’s picking up a sail at Bacon’s tomorrow and heading back home! Cool dude on a mission.
There was also a family stoked on Yuengling Lager, one of the local beers we serve aboard. They enjoyed the Troegs, Heavy Seas, and Flying Dog brews too- the other beers from our watershed.
This evening was the first time in a while that I took notice of the Horn Point light. It steadily flashed it’s white light every 6 seconds. While a guest was steering us into the harbor, I found it relaxing. And, I also thought I would be a crazy bird if I was the osprey that lives on that shoal mark 🙂
After passing the point, some local folks aboard heard Annapolis Yacht Club’s cannon marking the sunset, right on time.
It’s good to make the most of the summer! Thanks for a good day.
