First, Happy Memorial Day Weekend! The start of it all, and a humble reminder of the freedom we all are blessed with thanks to the brave souls that keep us free to enjoy weekends like this. Personal sacrifice for others is an amazing thing. Last night we had a wonderful dinner with some family, and friends at the Crazy Crab dockside. What a wonderful experience.
But we knew storms were a com’n, and kinda cut it a little close. This weekend is supposed to be a wash out here in Virginia. But the real magic can happen between storms. So after dinner thats what we did. Tried to cheat the gods. But! Storms on the Chesapeake Bay move fast. Real fast, and come out of nowhere. And thats what happened.
The good news is we were on Sweet Pea, and the bad news is we were on Sweet Pea, which couldn’t out run anything. I could hear the Boatress yell from the cabin. PUNCH IT MARGARET! And so it goes. 2100 RPMs at 10.5 knots. That old lady just cranked and cranked. Spewing global warming all over the Bay!
Hopefully your weekend plays out well. BTW, we have not had rain in months! So we are very happy. And for those of you wondering who is Margaret?
