The ‘Girls Day’ Boating Excursion…

:: Tags: Boating, Friends, Photo


Julie asked me some time ago, if I could make myself available to take her and some of her girlfriends out on our boat before the end of the summer. So after much planning, we decided to put together a boating day for the girls this past Saturday…. and it turned out to be a fabulous day with nothing but blue skies and sunshine! We started the day with a quick cruise out to the channel between Occoquan and Mattawoman Creek and then back to Occoquan Bay where we stopped long enough to take some pictures of the Rock Island Wreck (a very popular attraction lately!)

Then it was on to Belmont Bay where we found a nice shallow spot just off the beach to drop anchor and spend the rest of the afternoon. I admit I might have gone a little over-board with all the food (grilled shrimp, steak and veggie kabobs) but hey, it was Julies idea and from the looks on their faces I would say her friends totally enjoyed it! Anyway, it was a truly enjoyable day for all and as I said back at the dock, I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again in a second… just give me a heads up!

I’ve added some photos from the day to my journal gallery… just click the link below. For those of you who where there, I will send out an email soon with the URL where you can download the full sized image files for making prints.

The Rock Island Wreck…

:: Tags: Boating, Humor


This past Sunday, after anchoring and rafting up with friends at Belmont Bay, I learned that there had been a mishap on the river the night before. This is all second hand information, but it seems that a couple of fellows in a small Wellcraft power boat ended up launching their boat onto Rock Island just South of the Occoquan River Inlet. At first I was under the impression that they had just run aground on the rocks when they got too close to the island, but my friends assured me that was not the case.

After hearing the story of how the entire boat was up on the island… well I had to go see it for myself. So on our way back to the marina we took a detour out to the island and sure enough, the boat looked like it had been set atop the island with a crane! This was a way funny site, but I do hope the two people in the boat were okay. Hitting a land mass like this at speed could kill someone!! Maybe it’s time to put up a navigational marker light… you think!?
