What a nice weekend for boating around the Chesapeake Bay. OK it was hotter than H-E-Double Hockey Sticks, what better time to get out on the water. It was at least 10 degrees cooler out there. The water was calm. But something was wrong. Something was missing. No boats! It was strange and yet made things all the better. The shot above was taken around 9 AM. This is the main channel into Reedville. Usually by this time a very busy waterway. There are several marinas on the other end.…No jet ski’s at all. I did see some of the crabbers and some folks that depend on the water, but as recreational boating goes. Forget it. Being a silver lining ….glass half full type person, one could not miss the beauty in this. Nothing to bring you back into the mess our world is in now. For me, it was 1941, out on the water. No war, No Gas problems…..Wait… oh crap, WWII is coming, and Hitler is out of control, and fuel is being rationed, and my kid is at the age that he can be drafted, and….. I suppose life is how you want to see it, and what you choose to ignore… For me on the weekends out on my boat, I choose to ignore everything.
