Day 2: Tangier Island
The last time we sailed to Tangier Island was 1979 in a 20 foot sloop (Coriolis)
from Washington DC. We vowed to go back some day. Back then there were no cars,
only bicycles. This time we saw several cars, numerous golf carts, and
Bob fell from the boat when trying to board her from our slip. Thank goodness
his gut caught on the lifelines and he was saved.
Back to Jule III Home.
- Arriving Tangier Island: The Skyline
has changed remarkably since our last visit--new towers, new buildings.
- Ann Preparing to Tie Up: First Mate #1
prepares to tie up to the dock at Parks Marina. We were later assigned
a slip--the gut slip.
- Morning at Tangier Island: Getting ready to
depart. We were sorry that we could not spend more time, but Hurricane
Erika has our interest.
