Uneventful, peaceful day
22 October 2008 | Cockrell Creek, Great Wicomico River, Reedville, VA (37o50.262 x 076o16.537)
High 58, Low 36; Winds 20-30, wave & small craft advisory out
There was small craft weather advisory out today so we just stayed at anchor. Pretty uneventful day. We listened to the wind howl and did unfinished boat chores. I figured because it was cold it was a good day to make beef roll-ups (it's been a longggg time). I had thin sliced steak; stuffing stuff too, sooo spent the afternoon listening to music, making dinner, etc.
This is a cute little fishing town. Beautiful houses, but the fishing industry must be faltering. There were many factory buildings and large ships that looked derelict. Only one factory & fleet remains. Very nice anchoring in here though - there are 6 boats, one of which is one of the schooners that was in the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race - The Martha White out of Chestertown MD. She's a 65 ft double gaff-rigged wooden schooner purchased by Bob Kay to be used as a waterfront stage for playing bluegrass music with friends (turquoise hull makes her stand out). The race supports future preservation of the Chesapeake through education programs to make kids (students) aware of the great traditions and natural resources they have here.
