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.
