Stutts Creek

These are some shots taken from a recent boat ride on Stutts Creek.

And when I say recent, I actually mean April which feels like just yesterday.

Sadly I've been neglecting just about everything this blog 
and yet still have good intentions of posting more regularly.

But time just gets away from me, moving more and more rapidly.

It's June already.

It's also Busy Season at work.

And that means stress.  Lots of stress.

Outings like this one on the water are  so soothing to my frazzled nerves.

In addition to these sporadic, therapeutic excursions up and down Stutts Creek, I recently cruised to Reedville for something I'd never seen before:  boat docking races.  Middle Sister, some friends and I spent the day watching boats of various shapes and sizes race against the clock to see who could "sprint" from across the creek and then tie up (by throwing hoops over four poles). What a great way to spend a Saturday! I'm looking forward to another such event in Cape Charles later this summer. 

Except for this racing of time and trying to balance out all the stress of work, all is well in the Chesapeake Bay Family household.

I hope all is well in yours.

Here is a shot from a while back of the moon hovering over Queens Creek. 

I'm very happy today for several reasons.

First, I leave tomorrow for Florida, where I will board a cruise ship that will be my home for the next several days. This has been one of the longest, darkest, rainiest winters I can remember.  I'm thrilled at the prospect of warmth, sunshine and most of all no responsibilities!

Next, I am also very happy for another adventure that will happen in August:  Machu Picchu!  I booked my flight about a week ago and spent the better part of today booking hotels and the actual ticket to Machu Picchu.  The fact that I'll be going with my best friends from college and I'll be meeting Chesapeake Bay Son (who is working there this summer) makes me ecstatic!

So, I am just checking in to say all is wonderful here.

I hope it is with you as well.
