Yesterday around 3, I get a call from long time pal, Jimmy Scott. “What are you doing?” I said dying in meetings. He says. “Let’s go boating! I suddenly had a stomach ache. Needed to go home. I have been working long hours at the agency between boating events. So a little spontaneous time is always fun. And with Jimmy, a 100% guaranteed fun time. By 4pm I was headed down my street. And dang, there it was, just a couple houses down from me in our new neighborhood. Jimmy’s rare 1932 Deluxe Runabout.
And by 5 we were out tearing up the Potomac River. Now, to be honest, since we moved into our new home, we have yet to make it out on the water here.
Hey, life happens. That won’t happen again, the water here is stunning, fun and very peaceful….on weekdays. Restaurants, bars, marinas, homes, fresh water, all right here in one of the largest cities in the US. What the hell? I am 4th generation from this area, and had NO IDEA this was here.
So for about 3 hours we just toured the area and had a very nice 3 hour vacation from the local rush hour. Sometimes a spontaneous vacation is more refreshing than a week off!
Here is our boat house in the header today, it’s amazing that this is all so close to DC. No photo shop, its all how it looks. Massy Creek, right off Belmont Bay near Oquaquan / Woodbridge.
