Last Friday, Patti and I went on a sunset sail on the mouth of the Choptank River as it enters the Chesapeake Bay. The weather? Perfect!
At first there is no wind and Captain Chris, who is also the owner of the 75 year-old Lady Patty, asks, “Does anyone have a nickel?”
I produce a nickel and Capt’n Chris says, “Throw it in!” He then tells a very funny story involving buying a bit’o wind from Neptune. As he recounts his story the wind picks up and we’re off! For real.
I joke, “Hey, I got a quarter!”
“No! Don’t do it Ric!” shouts our Capt’n.
If you ever vacation in St Michaels or Tilghman Island, Maryland, you too can have this much fun: Captain Chris and the Lady Patty.
