in October page 1
Sunday October 22, 2006
In September as fall approached and the water temperature began to plunge Mary wanted to have one more Blue Sky trip before the weather became to cold. We tried to schedule the trip in early October to be on the safe side but for one reason or another the third weekend of October became the earliest date possible date. Once the trip was posted on the Blue Sky list Mary watched the weather prediction progressively got from warm and sunny to the chilly fifties and likely rain in the afternoon. The day before almost half the group canceled and Mary was wondering if anybody besides the two fo us and Sally would show. Sunday as the three of us, Mary myself and Sally arrived at the Monocacy landing Charles was already there. Jim and Caroline pulled up a few minutes later and we already knew that Roxanne was on her way to Whites Ferry.
