Last Sail on Ryana (at least for now)

So the boat is for sale and we have our flights booked back to the west coast.  We took Ryana out for one last sail to move her to the South River where she’ll be able to be viewed and hopefully find her new owner!  If she doesn’t sell by mid October we’ll move her south, but for all we know this could have been the final sail!

It was a beautiful day and the Bay was full of people out boating.  The wind was brisk and from the right direction so we hoisted sails and headed out.

We settled in to the new marina, at least Stanley made himself comfortable.  Now just the final packing and we’re off!

The Eastern Shore

We were lucky to be invited to share the dock at the house of our friends brother in Cox Creek.  We spent one night there enjoying their hospitality and took a fun walk around the neighborhood.  I think that seeing this beautiful house and neighborhood was the highlight of the trip for Ryan’s Mom!

At the dock and looking up at the house:

We took a fun walk around the neighborhood with our friend Kirk.  It used to be an old plantation that is now broken up into a few parcels for houses.  There is still co-op farming done on the land and we met the farm manager Mr. Fred.  He gave me a start when he saw a fly on me and smacked it away, but as he said “that’s how we do it around here.”  LOL.  What a fun time!  And we are continually amazed by the hospitality shown by folks in these parts.  But, I guess ,that’s just how they do it around here.
