Milton likes us, and we get to pay less than the going rate every year - a group rate?

Pictures from Gary's and Jeremy's first ...

Dick pauses on the main street by the cemetery before ...
...

... continuing on towards ...
...

... Spanky's Place near ...
...

... Hilda Crockett's Chesapeake House where Hans, Al, Tony and Mary will be staying
for the next two nights and all of us will be eating supper tonight.
...

Across the street is the Chesapeake House annex.
...

another look down the main street
...

Jeremy and Mary do the tourist thing. Mary's been here before of course. Just last year she gained fame as the "trollop of Tangier"!
...

With the land only a couple of feet above sea level, graves ...
...

... have to be ...
...

... above the ...
...

... ground.
...

Back at the marina, the boats look secure, and ...
...

... to my eyes ...
...

... extremely pretty!
...

Party time aboard Blue Mist: (l to r) Dick, Mary, Tony
...

Ah, and here's Milton Parks in his official cap and on his official "company" scooter, looking ...
...

... as great as ever!!
...

Hans is checked in, unpacked and ...
...

... relaxed on the bench in front of Hilda Crockett's.
...

another look at the Annex

Dinner at Hilda's was good and ...
...

... well attended. The young people work for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation who were there doing volunteer work.
...

The guests dig in.
...

Gary and Jeremy chat with some of the CBF people who are about to embark on a ...
...

... walking tour of the island.
...

A lot of these photos speak for themselves, so from here on in, I will let them do so, unless I have useful info to impart.
...

After supper, we headed back down to the marina where Hans is taking in the interesting complex of structures
lining the main channel while Tony admires Milton's pride and joy.
