Well, folks, we're a boat again! Walkure is in the water and floating nicely on her lines. The launch was yesterday, and now we will take a few days to get everything sorted out, bend on the sails, stow our gear, provisions, etc, and we will be ready to go cruising again.
Last weekend the Maritime Foundation of Mathews held a Maritime Heritage day right here at the marina. There were exhibits of locally built boats, some great models of Chesapeake work boats, food and music.
Also, our friends Laurie and Paul from Verkennen stopped by to visit. They attended the fair with us and shared we had dinner together a couple of times. Laurie taught Bev how to catch crabs and we all had some great crab cakes from their catch.
