Dramatic sky and Thomas Point Light

Captain's Blog    No Comments

We did the impossible!  Our guests had a chance to taste wonderful beer, see Thomas Point Light, see a rainbow and sail in near perfect conditions.

Look at the red and white lens.  The light rotates inside the colored enclosure.

Thomas Point Light

Thomas Point Light is probably the most famous light house on the Chesapeake Bay.  It was completed in 1875 and is the only screw pile light house still on station. This view shows the red and white sector on the lens (for enlarged view, click on image).  If you see a red flash you are on the wrong side of the light.  White flash tells you all is well.

 

Heaven parts the clouds to take a peek.

Just prior to us leaving the dock, nature had soaked everything and even given us some thunder and lightning.  This made for a dramatic sky and created some unusual views of the light house.

 

 

 

 

Terry, from Heavy Seas Brewery is extolling the wonders of the delicious Cutlass beer.  We are fortunate to have such excellent beer as close as Baltimore.  Terry has invited everyone to visit the brewery on a tour.  If you like beer, it is a great way to spend some time seeing it made.

"Wait" shouts Terry, "focus on this delicious beer!"

As we head back in, nature assures us that the rain is indeed over with a stunning view of a rainbow next to Greenbury Point.

Wow, what a display!

How do you answer the question, What do I want to do when I grow up? For me, it was, ask the question what do I love to do that I can share with others and make it a career? I taught instrumental music to elementary students for 25 years. When that was no longer an option due to budget cuts, I asked the question again? This time the answer was, with the help of my family, Schooner Woodwind.
