Catching up with Elan

While hanging around waiting for weather and for Monday to come to undertake yet ANOTHER Frigoboat repair, we heard M/V Elan hailing M/V Tardis over the VHF. Whoopee! We met Elan last year at Block Island and it was one of those immediate connections, similar to our introduction to Tardis the year before that on the Dismal Swamp.  We were successful in raising Michael and Barb on Elan, and enticed them to anchor  the next day in Back Creek by Zahnisers, where we were swinging on a mooring.
That night, we received a phone call from Barb and Lee on Wind Dancer, whom we met in Beaufort two years ago and who had monitored our call with Elan, but could not reach us by radio. They, too, will eventually be in Solomons, and after that, at Mill Creek. So, we have a lot of catching up to do with old boating friends.

Monday we will head to Washburn's, directly across from Zahnisers, again at Frigoboat's direction. Unless we get satisfaction, I can predict the commencement of WWIII. It won't be pretty.

Hi from Harriet & Skip on Moondance--remember us? We heard you briefly on the radio today. We finally left Annapolis and are heading south. Anchored in Mill Creek near Solomon's tonight. Are you also heading to the Bahamas this winter?

It's the ONLY thing... said...

We are right around the corner at Back Creek at Washburns and will be here at least until Thursday am. If you make it here, look us up. After this, we go to our Mill Creek by Reedville to visit our property. And yes, we are Bahamas bound once again. Will we finally meet you here or there?
