Month-long Sailing Trip: Crisfield-Part 2
Tuesday, July 8
Today is the only day of this trip that I kept my cell phone with me. I was waiting for a return call from the diesel mechanic I contacted. I forgot to take my cell phone out of my pocket before going into the pool this afternoon. Needless to say, it is a goner. We tried removing the water & immersing it in rice (to pull the water out) but all to no avail. During our 2-day mid-month break in Galesville, I'll have to get a new iPhone.
|I am disappointed in how Crisfield has deteriorated but it doesn't |
change my fond memories of Crisfield as a child.

|We walked around the town's waterfront this afternoon and got some ice cream. |
How many towns can boast about a waterfront ice cream shop?"

|Gordon's Confectionery on Main Street is the local hangout in Crisfield.|
|This is where all the watermen gather after harvesting crabs--they roll in between 7 and 9 AM |
because their day started at 2 AM. Breakfast at Gordon's "weren't too bad"
as they say here in Crisfield.
|This is Main Street in Crisfield--four lanes and parking on both sides but the town is basically empty.|
|Big Willey's is the local drive thru beer distributor--it is just off Main Street, on South Seventh Street.|
|A very colorful place in Crisfield--the Crisfield Tiki Bar on the waterfront.|
|Watermen's Inn on Main Street is an upscale place for dinner |
in Crisfield and the food is excellent!

|For some reason, spiders like sailboats. I captured this image |
of a spider web on our lifelines this morning.
|Within 30 minutes of arriving, the new starter was installed and it worked perfectly!|
