Destination of the Week
I know, we’ve talked about this place before but it’s worthy of a short repeat. It’s a grand destination for the woody boater and the dates are coming up quickly. Therefore,
St. Michaels, Maryland is our Destination of the Week. Why?
The Chesapeake Bay Chapter, Antique & Classic Boat Society presents The 21st Annual Antique and Classic Boat Festival at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in
In an earlier post Woody Boater confirmed that he will be there with Sylvia. Several folks we saw at the Sunnyland Antique Boat Festival will also be in St. Michaels for this show in June. It all adds up to another great weekend with old friends, a chance to meet new ones, plenty of old wood boats and yet another opportunity to work on building good memories.
Be there for the show but come early and leave late. See
Just do it, you won’t regret it.

A two hour sail, for about 30.00
will get you more information about the Chesapeake Bay than you can process. You get to help sail the boat and dredge up some oysters, great fun, a must do. http://www.skipjack.org/
