5/09 to Solomon's Island

It was hard to leave Onancock this morning!!!.  The picture below was taken from the bow of our boat just before we set out.  Onancock is a beautiful place and the people were lovely.

The morning was sunny as we headed out into the Chesapeake.  The crabbers were out checking their pots and we passed quite a few.  Our plan was to sail to Solomon's Island, MD.  The seas were 1-2 feet so the cruising was comfortable.  But just before 11 am, we saw storm clouds ahead.  It rained hard most of the way here.

There are many places on the charts that one can use plot the way.  The lighthouse below is located at Point No Point.  So it is the Point No Point lighthouse.  I could tell you more but there would be no point.  Eating on the loop is good.  Last night, we went to Mallards restaurant and the crab cake was made totally of crab, no filler.  Today for lunch, I made cubano sandwiches.  I think one could easily gain weight.

We arrived at Solomon's Island just as the sun reappeared. 
There a quite a few looping boats here.  Shortly after 5 pm, we were invited to join in at docktails.  Docktails is a BYOB and snacks, similar to TGIF in The Tides.  Stories included, unintentionally swimming with alligators, face to face encounters with barracudas, seeing submarines break the surface, and how nice all the husbands are to wake the women up with coffee in the morning.  John does that for me everyday.  He is wonderful.
