Testing out a new feature

Not sure this is going to work. It's a collection of some of the videos I took around the waterfront. Let me know if it works and I'll keep it up for a while. It is a work in progress. Hopefully, in the near future, there will be thumbnails on each video as it scrolls past so you will know what video to click onto, but for now, there is just the word video.

Kayaking Through The Cricks

The Cricks is always an interesting place to go kayaking. I was there yesterday afternoon. There wasn't another soul in sight. Just me and the wildlife. Here are a few pictures I grabbed-

The entrance-

If you are into bird watching, this is the place to go. Around every corner I saw a different bird-

Town is so close but you would never know it. It's very peaceful in the cricks-

The perfect 1/4board for this house!-

An old twin engine wreck-

A tranquil part of the cricks-

Ottison's boats that they built-

A little cottage on the edge of the marsh-

Behind these houses is the rotary-

Winding through up towards the back of Marine Home Center-

Nearing Consue Springs. Too narrow here to proceed. Had to turn back-

Heading back out. Masts from sailboats in the mooring field-

If you're into sailboats, this one is for you. She's worth a look. I spotted her tied up at the end of Old North Wharf this afternoon. Her name is Hetairos and she's homeported in Georgetown. I was amazed at all her bright work. I couldn't imagine having to sand and re varnish all that every six months.

Some more shots of Hetairos-

I always have to laugh when I see these signs on boats down at the Boat Basin. What makes them think I want to board their ugly yacht anyway? I'd much rather go on an old Harvey Gamage eastern rigged dragger.

Nice day for a sail down harbor.

Fluke boats rafted up at the Town Pier.

The little sea scalloper, Intrepid.
