Highlights from the Tangier Rally

Even Mother Nature couldn't damper that Dogwood spirit.  After days of torrential rains, the weather cleared and the motorhomes began to arrive at the Cockrells around noon on Friday with 7 coaches in attendance.  Click here for photos from the rally.  

On Friday evening we enjoyed a potluck dinner, as usual all the food was wonderful. We served 17 for dinner, which included 2 guests.

Saturday began with breakfast at 8 am then off to the marina to board the Chesapeake Breeze for a ride across the Chesapeake bay to Tangier Island which took 1 hour and 40 min. After a 2 1/2 hour visit and good food we arrived back at port about 4 pm.

We were very pleased that Pat and Clint Allen joined us for dinner and karaoke. It was good to see Clint doing much better.

Sunday morning, we concluded the weekend with breakfast and our farewells. 

The Cockrells place is on the the Wicomico River and they had tables and chairs set up in their 3 car garage so the group had a place to get together inside.

Thank you to Marion & Bill for their hospitality.
