Laser sailing An event for Laser sailors age 35 and up, October 16-17 at Fishing Bay Yacht Club, a very few miles from Heaven Scent B & B, on the beautiful Piankatank River where it meets the Chesapeake Bay. We still have a room open, so call or book online at

Fishing Bay hosts many regattas throughout the year: One Design (series from April through October), Lasers, the Leukemia Cup, and this past summer, the Opti Nationals as well. Check out Fishing Bay Yacht Club's Photostream on Flickr for some fine shots of sailing on the Piankatank and the Bay.

Holly Point Art and Seafood Festival poster, October 9, 2010 This Saturday brings my favorite annual event here in Rivah Country - and that's saying a lot. Holly Point is the grounds of the Deltaville Maritime Museum, a lovely waterfront tract. The festival showcases somewhere between 70 and 100 local artists and craftsfolk, offering a lot of beautiful, creative works tempting for your own home or for special gifts. Get ready for Christmas! I find pottery and jewelry especially tempting at this festival, but there is truly a lot to choose from, art in all media, wood crafts, stained glass. And the food is delicious, simply crabcakes, fried fish, shrimp, and of course hamburgers and barbecue as alternatives. I love this festival because it gives you a lot to enjoy, good quality, a beautiful setting, and it's all in a just-right size: you don't have to hike the length of two football fields from the parking lot ... You can take it all in, have a wonderful day, and have energy left over. A very happy event, well-planned, well-executed, from our pride-inspiring local staff and volunteers at the Deltaville Maritime Museum.
