Sports reigned high on the Quest this morning. News flash!! Keola won his heat and will continue on tomorrow (Friday). It is so cool to watch the heat on the PC. You could really see just who was catching the wave in the competition and Keola’s interview after his win was super. Can’t wait to watch tomorrow at 10:15 Ca time on http://www.surfamericalive.com/. This is cut from the Surf America web page:
Surfing America Boys U16 Round 1 Heat 2 Results - 1st Keola Correira, 2nd Josh Giddings, 3ed Cameron Richards, 4th Luke Hitchcock.Yesterday at 11:49am
We also got to watch John Isner (via the Wimbledon scoreboard on the PC) win his marathon, 3 day match and Sam win his second round match too. Great job guys!
Traveling from Atlantic City to Long Beach Island, Dan called Beach Haven Yacht Club for dockage availability. When he gave our name the owner asked if he were related to that young tennis player, Sam Querrey. Small world! We did travel on to the marina but not without coming in contact with the sandy bottom in the channel. This time it was less than 3’! Once again, Dan guided Quest slowly out of the extreme shallows. We arrived at the marina just in time to get tied up and checked in before the skies lit up with a thundering, howling storm. Charlene called to let us know they were still setting on the Philly runway (2 hours) due to wind, thunder, lightning and hail. Well, we didn’t get the hail but it was the worst storm we have encountered yet in our travels.
Once the storm cleared, we walked to Black Whale for a great dinner and a visual recap of the Isner/Mahut match. Dan snapped this record setting scoreboard from the bar’s TV. Too unbelievable! We also sat next to a couple that lives in Waitsfield, VT. The world is shrinking more and more as we travel farther and
A nice after dinner walk brought us to a market with produce, the thing we couldn’t find in Atlantic. The beach is close, the town worth exploring and the fellow boaters most helpful and friendly. We may spend another day here.
