Oysters on the Half Shell

Well, it was no wonder First Edition was auditioning for the slow boat to China on our trip South. Once hauled, a veritable confirmation of the health of the Chesapeake Bay was displayed, oysters joining the barnacles in a two-inch thick growth on our keel. Mortifying. I am tempted to send this picture to Interlux to let them know what we think of their Micron bottom paint. For sure, Petitt will be our coating of choice this year.

We celebrated our clean bottom aboard Cloverleaf, and met Greg and Marie Rodgers aboard Second Sally. Dave and Bev knew these guys from their time in the Med, and Peter and I were enchanted with and envious over their stories of wonderful destinations. The bucket list grows.
