Friday night we got a chance to hang out with our good friends Steve and Heather on their boat M/V “Bottoms Up” in Galesville, MD. Galesville is on the West River, and is a pretty cool place to keep a boat. We had fresh rockfish onboard while thunderstorms swept through the area.
Saturday we motored up the Bay in light winds to the Bohemia River and rafted up with Jay and Tanya on S/V “Minx.” We were also joined by Sean, Shannon and little Cara on M/V Badfish. (You may remember Sean and Shannon from their visit to Long Island.) We had a blast Saturday night with Bill joining us from the marina. Bill and I missed each other earlier in the dark while I ran into the marina and he ran out to the raft-up, ‘…like dinghies passing in the night.’
Sunday morning we bid farewell to Minx as they headed north to Rhode Island for a few months. It was a short visit, but that’s more incentive for Joint Venture to get cruising north even sooner to catch up with them. After they left we pulled Joint Venture into Bohemia Bay Yacht Harbor, her home for the next couple weeks as we take care of some things.
From there we headed back out to meet up with Merrill, Katie and little Nathan and the crew of the Badfish for some more fun on the water. After a long day of catching up with great friends, grilling out, swimming, and relaxing we dinghied back into the marina.
Monday morning we started working on the to-do list. BBYH has new free wifi, and I started taking care of some things we’ve needed to do but haven’t had a chance to until we got fast wifi. Readers of the blog will notice a few format changes on the pages, and we should have a new Spot messenger soon. Along with the improvements, we also have added few ads.
Don’t worry, we’ll be sure to stop before we look like these guys:
