This weekend is our hometown Classic Boat Show at the Reedville Fishermen’s Museum. One of the special treats of the show is how intimate it is. As in you will get to know all the boat owners and there are always tours of the area. Sorry no one is wearing lingerie though, not that kind of intimate. Pervs!
We will have WECATCHEM there to go out, and the Barrel Back Barn find on land. Jimmys “Yannon” John Rothert’s From VA, Clif Aimes, and several other boats of his will be there and about 40ish others. Classic fishing, oyster and Byeboats will be there. There is a flea market, which sometimes is shockingly good. The weather in September is great in Virginia, and so is the boating.
Reedville Virginia is a charming small town at the mouth of the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay. Its known for its fishing and still a working fishing village. This isn’t really a weekend town, so no fancy hotels. But some good food and bed and breakfast places. Like The Gables and Ma Margret’s House.
The town is rich in history and if you’re into old houses, a true treasure, boasting to be the wealthiest town in America… Per Capita during the depression. The architecture is New England style and a fun Weekend adventure. Restaurants, The Crazy Crab is fun as is Tommy’s both walking distance from the show and on the water. So if you like traveling back in time, and enjoying a simple no internet, cell phone day! Reedville this weekend is the chance. Here is the link to the show flyer. Fancy aint it!
