Nice! I've heard Solomons is pretty, but I've never made it out there. How long do you think it will take you to get there? Sorry, don't mean to be nosy...one of the reasons I was ready to leave NOVA was (my apparent misperception of) the lack of access to boating. I had grown up on power boats when I was a kid, and would have loved to have had a boat when we lived there. We lived near the Twin Lakes, and thought about getting a kayak to keep there just so I'd have SOME ties to the water! We wound up moving outside Philly, which brings beaches and boating within an hour and a half to two hour drive.
