Another long weekend comes to an end And I lived to tell about it. I have to admit there were a few minutes in the kayak on Saturday when I was a little
terrified worried. We went down to Solomons Island in Southern Maryland. While checking the weather forecast on our way, I noticed that a Small Craft Advisory was going to go in to effect a few hours later. Because of that, we stayed on the river and didn’t go near the Bay. Next time, we’ll stay off the river, too.
I took a couple of pictures when we were first setting out, but there were no more opportunities. All’s well that ends well!
The reason we chose that location this weekend was so that we could meet up with Jamie from busy bee quilts. Jamie and I were working on our Farmer’s Wife Quilts together a couple of years ago, and recently, she tracked down some fabric that I needed. We had a wonderful dinner with Jamie and her DH.
After we left the restaurant, we stopped at the Maritime Museum for pictures of the Drum Point Lighthouse. Which reminded me that I hadn’t posted pictures from our lighthouse cruise last weekend.
First was Bloody Point, which I’ve never seen before. The second light was Sandy Point, which can be seen from the Bay Bridge, and which we have kayaked out to.
Next up was Baltimore Harbor Light, which I showed at a great distance a couple of weeks ago when we were on the Bay.
Thomas Point is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the country. This was my first viewing of this beauty. It’s a style known as a screwpile light.
And then there’s Sharp’s Island Light. Sharp’s Island washed away many years ago, and the Light was knocked askew by an ice floe in 1977. It is listed on the Lighthouse Digest Doomsday List of endangered lighthouses.
I’ve been working furiously on WIP’s this month, so I really don’t have anything stitchy to share. Wait – yes I do! Di’s challenge this month was to use polka dots. I knew I had some dotty fabric, and while searching for it, my leaning tower of scraps fell over. Which led to much cleaning and organizing in my sew room. But I digress. I stitched one of Jenny of Elefantz’s designs, and made a cushion. It’s an odd size and won’t fit a pillow form, so I have to buy some stuffing for it. But I’m counting it as a finish for Di.
Back to work tomorrow……Sunny
