No.

You haven't pissed me off. However the repeated use of Onacock is rather annoying. It was kinda funny the first couple of dozen times but now it's just getting old & sophomoric.

“It was like finding a magic portal to the 1950s,” says Dolph. “There were these cool old buildings and the people were just so friendly. It was a warm, tightknit, Mayberry-esque community. And the beach was a hundred yards down the road!”

COAST GUARD, U.S. ARMY RESCUES 2 PEOPLE FROM SUBMERGED VESSEL IN CHESAPEAKE BAY

Portsmouth, Va. — The Coast Guard and the Army rescued two people from the water 6.5 miles west of Fisherman Island, Virginia, Monday night.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads initially received the report from soldiers aboard the U.S. Army vessel New Orleans, who had just pulled two people from the water after their 16-foot vessel sank after being swamped by weather four hours earlier.

Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads watchstanders launched a 45-foot Response Boat Medium from Coast Guard Station Cape Charles to respond.

Once on-scene, the Coast Guard crew transferred the two survivors to the response boat and transported them back to Coast Guard Station Cape Charles.

“These people’s vessel sank so fast that they were unable to use their communication devices to call for help,” said Lt. Cdr. Trisha Jantzen, Sector Hampton Roads command center chief. “Thankfully, they were smart enough to already have their life jackets on, which is the number one way to increase your chances of survival in the water. Without the life jackets, these survivors may not have been able to stay afloat for the four hours they were in the water before they were rescued.”
============================
very lucky that Army craft was passing by & spotted them...............

Made the list as one of the Souths best retirement towns.

From: Southern Living

Onancock : Shore Daily news



"The article states that the town of 1200 was founded in 1680. It points out the Victorian Mansions, access to the Chesapeake Bay, local shops, the Roseland movie theater and several local restaurants.

Onancock isn’t the only Chesapeake Bay Town on the list. It is joined by Easton and Havre de Grace, Maryland. The only other Virginia community to make the list is Abingdon."

well - the first meeting of the Southern Branch of the NY Anglers convened at the Island House this evening to partake in their happy hour specials - clams (50 cents a piece), Oysters ($1 a piece), Chicken WIngs (50 cents a piece - went with garlic parmesan as I have a tender stomach) & some brews from the Cape Charles Brewery.

Enjoyed the scenic water views & discussed things.

In attendance were myself & Capt13. We hope to expand the membership shortly with Sandspinner & Macks next time. All in all - a delightful time.
