Memorial Day with Family
We had an easy trip to Sarah Creek off of the York River, where we managed to find swing room between the crab pots to anchor. Sooner or later this creek will not be usable as the pots are taking over. Anyhow, we got lucky. We spent a few nights with Kathie and Jimmy and enjoyed meeting Jimmy's family who we hosted for dinner. We attended a fantastic Memorial Day Event organized by their friend, Charles, and we entertained by New Horizons, a group of veterans, all of whom are recovered alcoholics or drug addicts and have quite a bit of soul, fabulous. Charles was the father of a concept that was eventually approved by Congress that provided that all returning WWII vets who had been honorably discharged but who had not graduated from high school were awarded their diplomas. Charles is quite a guy.
Peter and I ran around running errands for a day, then headed back to Sarah Creek awaiting decent weather to leave.
