St. Michaels Wooden Boat Show

Crab Art At The Museum Boat Show
Saturday, June 20, 2009 Another wet and soggy day. The weather has been very unusual for this time of the year. Again the crew put on their weather gear to tour the museum and boat show.
The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, one of the regions finest, chronicles the Bay's rich history of boat building, commercial fishing, navigating, and hunting in compelling detail. Exhibits among nine buildings on the 18 acre waterfront site include two of the bay's unique skipjacks among the museums more than 80 historic regional boats. There is also the restored 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse, a working boatyard, and a "waterman's wharf" with shanties and oystering and crabbing tools. After a few hours of looking at boat show boats, Joan and Debbie were suffering from "Boat Fatigue". The crew took a break for lunch. After lunch Ian and Kevin went back to the museum for more boat viewing, while Debbie & Joan went shopping and later had wine at the St. Michael's Winery. They ate dinner at Kevin's favorite restaurant, The Bistro. Never a bad meal yet!! The crew walked home again tonight.
