One Hot Summer NightFairlee Creek, MD
July 7th, 2012
It was a warm cruise, but we had a great time crossing the bay before approaching the Fairlee Creek inlet, about an hour in total time, cruising at a comfortable 22 knots. We had no trouble at the intlet, made our turn in to Fairlee and oh-my-goodness! We had never seen so many boats! Looks like everyone had the same idea. We dodged the rafts, dinghtys, boats & swimmers and made our way to the Feretti, INXS, sitting like a beacon at the back of the creek.
The gang had dinked over to Jelly Fish Joel's so, we tied up with the help of Where To, where we were promptly invited to lunch! Gotta love boaters - so generous in welcoming a soggy bunch on board! Delicious burgers, dogs & sausages, as well as a local (PA, I'm guessing) concoction of cucumbers in a sauce made from melted candy red hots. As Buddy put it "very unique"!
Swimming was next for me, I couldn't get in soon enough with the triple digit temps. I made a new friend in the water, 11 year old Cassandra, and we decided to test our agility by swimming around the entire boat raft! By then the crew had returned, whereupon I was asked the dreaded question - "What happened to the blog?" I was wondering if it would come up this summer, and there it was, hanging out there. I didn't have an answer other than no pics (and laziness), so here we are...
