Tourist Day

17 October 2018
Today was our first full day of playing tourist so, after a leisurely morning on the boat, we headed into town to check out the sights. It's literally a 2 minute dinghy ride across the harbour to the town dock where we could leave the dinghy for the day. We wandered into town and checked out some of the shops and beautiful homes that line Main Street. We found a little lunch spot overlooking the harbour and enjoyed our lunch watching the action on the water.

After lunch we went to the Maritime Museum which has 14 buildings on 18 acres of waterfront land. The is a great museum with a wide variety of displays. Among the displays are; a replica Chesapeake Bay lighthouse, a working skipjack for oyster dredging, plus numerous displays documenting the history of the bay, especially the oyster industry. The boat restoration is done in a huge wood working shop where visitors can watch from a mezzanine overlooking the shop floor. We had planned on spending another day here however, the winds are favourable for us to move on so I guess we'll have to come back another time.

Today's picture is of the many boats in the museum. This boat was used for "trot-lining clams",it's 37' long and less then 6'wide. It’s long and skinny, Kinda like a motorized Etchells.
