Two Confused Old People
12 October 2011
Yes, we were 2 confused old people as we tried to navigate our way into Deltaville without going aground. The entrance into Deltaville is shallow at points and there is a narrow entrance - which we did navigate after finding and following buoy markers. When entering the entrance to the channel we were given directions from Dozier's Marina where we would be staying... and promptly went a different way. The kindness of Chris, the marina manager, he gave direction so explicitly that yes even the 2 "confused old people" found their way into the marina and dock. The Dozier's Marina is owned by the people who publish the Dozier Waterway guides that we reference every trip to decide upon a marina or anchorage. They are invaluable. The Marina offered private bathrooms, a pool, a gorgeous deck overlooking the waterway, Franken bikes, a courtesy car, barbecue area, and again some of the nicest people around. We were stuck... we were able to shop, enjoy the sights, and finish up some boat maintenance. We had perfect early fall weather- sunny and in the 70's. We went to the Holley Point Seafood and Art Festival just up a short bike ride from the marina. On tour bicycle trip on the way back we had a bald eagle fly just over our heads. It was the closest either of us have been to seeing a bald eagle in nature. We once again met some kind and generous people. Marty generously took time to take Wiley over to pick up some diesel and gas for our jerry cans. We enjoyed a 'sundowner' with Marty and Stan the evening prior to leaving.
