We traveled out of Knapps Narrows into the Bay and South to Sharps Island Lighthouse. The families were entertained with narrative about the Bay, The Poplar Island restoration project, local fishing and crabbing methods and our abundance of Bay Wildlife and waterfowl. The younger children were quite interested in the Captains helm station and had many questions about how he knew where we were. You're never too young to learn the fine art of navigation!
After traveling around the lighthouse and telling some of it's tales and history we ran up the Choptank River and the East side of Tilghman Island and came in under the drawbridge.
The nesting Osprey population has provided us with ongoing entertainment this season as we have the privilege of watching them build the nests, wait patiently for the babies to hatch, fiercly protect the new babies from the gulls and ever threatening passing vessels. Now the babies are big enough to sit up on the edge of the nest and call eagerly for the next meal. Soon we will be treated to first flights...both failed and successful!
Thanks so much to the families who shared Fathers Day with us.
We are always happy to consider private bookings for special family events, reunions, office outings...just give us a call to discuss rates and your date.
