Last fall we had the pleasure of taking our first boat trip down the river. We had friends visiting from my home town (upstate New York) and we wanted to do something special. My good friend Bobby Whear suggested taking an afternoon boat ride and we decided that was just the thing to do. I contacted Olga via email and asked about the scheduling. It seems that our friends were going to be up here on an "off day" when the boat was not normally available. However, Olga said that she would see if Chip could accommodate us and, as it turned out, he was able to do so. That was the beginning of a wonderful experience.
We set off from Schooners and, for the next two hours, we enjoyed all the sights on the water. There were ospreys and seals and all types of water foul. The coastal views were spectacular. Chip told us all about oyster farming and harvesting, the wildlife of the area, and generally kept us entertained. Olga was the most gracious hostess (I guess I should call her the first mate)....she is so warm and friendly and has a smile that would light up a room....needless to say, we enjoyed the time we spent with the two of them. We had drinks during our voyage (they have a full bar) and Olga was gracious enough to let us bring some of our own wine and cheese along....all in all, it was a great day! We all agreed that the rates were more than reasonable. We have friends coming to visit us again this summer and we already have plans on taking another trip or two. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area. In fact, I have already spread the word among our friends that live in the community....this is one trip you won't want to miss!
