with Joe and Diane
Monday September 3, 2012 BackHome
Labor Day Monday after Paul and Kimberly's wedding on Saturday, Joe and
Diane came to Lexington Park to spend the days with us. We cruised the
boat to Placid Harbor. At the entrance to Cuckhold Creek, just off
the Clark's Landing dock, we saw a pod of ~20 bottle nose dolphins. We
have not seen dolphins in the Chesapeake in the five years we have been
boating, so it was certainly a surprise to see them in Cuckhold Creek.
They seemed to be healthy and moving. We watched them as they moved
from Clark's Landing out toward the Patuxent River. Reading some blogs,
it sounds as though there was a sighting on July 3, 2012 in the same
vicinity. Very exciting to see.
Later we anchored in Placid Harbor and put NH-2 in th water. After a
short rain shower we exercised NH-2 in Placid Harbor.
