I drove up solo Friday morning and launched from the Glorious Hole at 10:00 AM. Cloudy, no wind and 50 odd degrees. Perfect.I ran all the way up Angels Creek tossing a silver kastmaster on the prowl. Had many big followers swipe at it right at the boat but they would not commit fully to the relationship. After an hour I pulled up and motored east of the 9er bridge, the site of former carnage. It was on but slower than weeks past. Had many bald eagle interactions.
I checked into the Jamestown Railtown Hotel (not bad) and had dinner at the Willow Steakhouse (est 1862, two thumbs way up). Steak, shrimp, baked potato, salad, bread, stoly grapefruit and a bottle of Bogle Zin!
Saturday morning I was joined by Chef Jerry and Dr. Gallaty at GH Sports 7 AM. We launched in the fog and headed east.
Jerry whips out his stove and proceeds to grill up Sauteed shrooms, burgers with OA red chilli flakes, proscuitto, 2 kinds of queso on Ciabatta bread. OMG!
