Today's Pics

A few pics from the Solomons Watermen’s Festival & Boat Docking contest.
This contest had all the excitement of a Friday night high school football game in small town Arkansas.
Plenty hoots and hollers,

 Steely eyed determination.

and skill...

Paid off.

A winner.

12th Annual Calvert County Watermen's Festival 2013-- September 22, 2013 starting at noon at Watermen's Wharf at the end of Solomons Island.  The Festival is perhaps best known for our BoatThe Maryland Blue Crab (Callinectes sapidus) or "Beautiful Swimmer" Docking Contest, during which work boats and charter boats compete within their divisions for cash, prizes and trophies.  Never a dull moment, this is a spectacular event to watch!  Beer, food and soft drink sales and exhibits by some of our sponsors will also be available.   Live entertainment will be provided by Deanna Dove, the Island Girl herself (below).
