All the way to Reedy Creek

Managed to get out for a sail last week and made it Reedy Creek, all of a mile or so from Beaton’s. Once reached I hove too for an hour for lunch and more Tilman adventures near K2.

Here are a few pics and videos from the sail:

As far as I can tell, this is the only Osprey next on their preferred foundation. It’s just north of Reedy Creek.

Sailing past the Oyster Farm. The floats are attached to cages which are full of happy Oysters.

Here the cars are upside down and empty of Oysters. The farmers do this to dry and remove the usual growth of grasses and such.

The Sloop Point platform has a pair of young Osprey almost ready to fly.

Beating out of Jones Tide Pond with Juniors to weather.

The nest across Stockton Lake from us has three little ones with the largest itching to fly.

  1. Russ, Great site you have here. I’m in Sussex county NJ. I’m a traditionalists with wooden boats. I restore small boats and canoes in my shop here. Every few years I bring some to The Tom’s river wooden boat show. I used to go to Beaton’s years ago just to walk around and see what’s going on. Love that place. I took some great osprey photos while sailing in Rock Hall Maryland this past week. Anything Gaff rigged always catches my eye. Sjogin’s a great boat. I’m building a Penobscot 17 lapstrake now. Also the Joel White flatfish is one of my dream boats. thanks, Dave Satter
