And so, we arrived at the airport to meet them about 2 hours before they were to arrive... just in case, you know. A flat tire, a traffic jam, who knows.
The flight was early and before too long, we spotted our visitors. So cool!!! Eight weeks without family is too long. Pam was a little teary. Not me, though!
|Pre visit - Pam is "Noodling" with buddy boats
|Chevy at home on Blue Pearl
|Looking in on a boaters' evening flotilla
|Chevy exploring different expressions
|Oh, are there any shells here?
|Gran supervising shell collecting
|What? A treasure map???
|Wow! Digging up treasure in Five Islands!!!
What a great day!!!
Thursday wasn't as great. Chevy was determined to find another treasure but we couldn't find any. Devastating! Dang!
We sailed up to Deep Bay and anchored for the afternoon. Scrambled up to Fort Barrington... but there are no gift shops or ice-cream stores so our time up there was limited.
On the way back, "My Mommy" said she would like to swim out to Blue Pearl and so, of course, Chevy wanted to engage in that adventure with "My Mommy." So they did! Swam all the way out to the boat. Pam and I had a gin and tonic while we waited for them.

So cool to have our family come visit Blue Pearl while we are down here.
