"Smooth sea never made for a skillful sailor..."
We venture out in all weather and sometimes wish we didn't. Most of the time, we are glad to be free of the docklines, free from boat chores and life chores. At least for a while. Even a short sojourn clears the mind and invigorates our emotional batteries. We are glad to come back to shore, sometimes more weather wise but always looking forward to the next outing...
Mid September weekend's channel 16 traffic centered around this poor ship who was left abandoned around Mosquito point, R8, Rappahannock River. The river goes shallow to less than 2 feet at this triangular extension of land to the river.
The winds graced the Bay on the last two week of working man 's Summer. We ventured forth to the Eastern Shore and the Eastern Shore came to Deltaville.
The low tide at Onancock creek has this man frolicking with his dog, walking on water.
There are moments that are crystallized in memory: the meeting of two Jeanneau sisters in mid Bay with both photographs taken just seconds apart...

Just a weekend at the end of August but signaling an end of summer and the start of school and more serious months to come.
