Thread: Visited Smith Island

  1. #1

    Visited Smith Island

    It's a pretty unique place. I want to go again and take the wife daughter but the channel from Point Lookout is temp closed. The 7/8 layer cake was awesome, best I've had in a long time. The resturant there was pretty good. The only thing is we could not venture off too far. Smith Island Road goes to a bridge and we couldn't take the golf cart past that point. Also we only had a few hours to explore, so if you did the restaurant first you won't have much time.

    The Smith Island cruise is a nice day. Not a lot happening in that neck of the woods, but the one restaurant is really good and it's fun to wander around the town.

    My kids had one shipped to me for my birthday this year. Yep..awesome.

    It's a short cruise for us in our boat..but always one of those, "yeah..next time..lets hit the lower Rappahannock (Deltaville, Urbanna etc) instead because there are so many more places to go" things comes in to play. Or Kinsale, when that was still open and rolling.

    You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. -Frank Zappa

    Effin boring place to me. The best part was a very rough ride home, I spent it wedged on deck to avoid the puke fumes in the cabin. Got slapped pretty good 5 or 6 times by waves. I had no idea such shallow water could get riled up that way.
    No more splitting Uranium for fun and profit, retirement is cool so far....

    Lots of very deep water between here and there.....

    And BTW I wasn't trying to be a jerk or passive-aggressive or telling you to go google it yourself, there were a few good links and it was just was easier to post the Google hit than a bunch of individual links.

    I think he was trying to hear from the OP.
