The call to be "on the water" continues...
Come aboard the "Granada",
a 47' Pacemaker Motor Yacht with twin Detroit 671 Diesels,
family boat during the Seventies,
and generally considered by all to be
the "prettiest boat on the Chesapeake Bay".
Before the "Granada"
cruised the 38' Viking "Galaxy".
Most recently, the 30' "Escort".
Other notable boats include
the "Mar-J" a 30' cabin cruiser operating out of the Neshaminy Creek, and the "Restless", a
21' sloop rigged sailboat with a centerboard and a tiny single cylinder gas engine. Often, the "Restless"
was referred to, with a smile, as the "Helpless" or the "Hopeless".
Verna and Bud,
partners in marriage 60 years, and counting,
seen here plotting their next adventures,
while on a walk among the trees, near their home,
taken during the week
of their 84th and 85th birthdays, respectively, August 2000.
the mission of securing a banana
for the fruit salad,
this young (mid twenties), impetuous couple stepped away
from the preparations of a dinner
with the parents
and drove through the night in their tired, 60hp '37 Ford coupe
to Warrenton, Virginia and were married.
The day was Monday, April 1, 1940.
April Fools Day.
