Love Reedville Style – Did She Say Yes?
While you all were yammering on about this and that yesterday, we had some good old fashion love happening here at the Global HQ. I have had to keep this under wraps cause it was a surprise. Nothing better than a deadline to get stuff done. And just in time.
We all knew this weekend was going to be a wash out, but people had been invited, organized for one of my buddies kid to pop the question out on the dock. Well, that wasn’t gonna happen, so the Railway became a good option in case.
It was a great opportunity to give the Railway a new life as a gathering spot, and what a better way than with true love. The start of a lifetime of joy, togetherness, and some “what do you want for dinner? I don’t know, what do you want?”
We also were about to finish the LOVE sign for parking area out front, and this was, is ..a great way to share the Crab Pot love with a great start. It know means a ton more than just another Virginia LOVE sign across the state. This one was born here, and the plan is to share it around town as needed or wanted.
The Railway got a good deep cleaning and organizing, ish… Okay I used the blower and blew out the place and frantically shoved stuff on shelves. And here is how if looked before..
SOOOOOO! enough milking the story, did she say yes? I mean this took some courage. A surprise proposal with family all around. YIKES. But..
A Huge thanks to the Altaffers family for getting the Railway off to a wonderful new life, with joy, family and love! I couldn’t have planned it any better! Woohooo!
Wow, you sure have cleaned that place up. It looks great, and a nice way to kick off it’s new purpose in Reedville. I have to believe a WoodyBoaterville party some day would be fun!
I just love your photos and stories!
Started my day off with my favorite subjects. Love & BOATS!
This is awesome! I love what you’ve done with the place. Looks fantastic and congrats to the sweet happy couple. ❤️
Great way to break in the new railway!
Is that Carrie Underwood? Is Kasey what she goes by in the real world?
LOVE the LOVE signs all over VA!
Very cool and the place looks fantastic! My youngest son got engaged last Sunday, so love is definitely in the air. My oldest son is now rumored to be looking for rings as well. The middle child is my daughter who is already engaged. We could have 3 weddings shortly!
wonderful day at the railway, congrats to Nathan and Kasey. A new life for Matt and Boatress with Matts new baby. It all looks pretty idyllic down in Reedville.

Wow I love your hanging Art and someday maybe I will hang there too.
PS When do you sleep?
That kiss looks really dangerous.
Were they tested first ?
Was it low tide ? They could have been swept out to sea.
Typical WB spelling! I think you meant Horace’s @ss?
I love your good natured humor. Place looks great Matt. If we can’t laugh at ourselves, we’re in deep horse$hit.
