Sailing on the Patuxant River

Saturday, June 10, 2017

A generous member,  and his two neighbors, take the senior missionaries sailing every year. Three sailboats, hot sun, no wind, but a beautiful two hour ride. The Patuxent River is one of more than 150 rivers that empty into the Chesapeake watershed. The Chesapeake is the largest estuary on the continent, the third largest in the world, and covers 64,000 square miles.  We came back to lunch of fresh crab, grilled chicken, and all the trimmings at the member's beautiful home on the water. The crabs were puny compared to the Dungeness we ate in Washington, which made them more work, but they were still delicious!

President Johnson, Sister Lassiter and Sister Gines, who are going home and I will miss them.
They are so funny and wonderful women.

Crabs were small compared to west coast Dungeness.

But they were delicious!
