A long overdue update
31 December 2015 | Blue Water Marina: Mayo, MD
New Year's resolution: Get back to this. So, here I am with much to catch up on. Briefly, moved Little Wing to a small marina on the Rhode River in April 2014. No pool, hot tub, security guards or services. Only unspoiled sunsets over Camp Letts and the Smithsonian Environmental Research Laboratory, a very small number of active boaters and clean bathrooms. Owners descend from a long line of watermen. The marina used to function as a boat yard, but no longer.
This spot is more accessible to secluded anchorages than HHN, but a downside is that the view from my slip is so beautiful and the area so quiet, I am content to sit in the cockpit and enjoy it. Too many days find me working for hours on the teak and ending the day with a sundowner in the cockpit and a live jam playing on the bluetooth speaker. Candlelight dinner to follow. No complaints, but resolution: sail more.
