its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

April 27 - Solomons, MD

Micro Brews & Pizza
Mill Creeks - Anchorage

A cold front moved through early this morning, blowing out the rain and bringing in high winds and blue skies. Stan did a little work on our antenna tower...there's always something to work on when you own an old boat.

After lunch the wind laid down (a little) so we took our bikes and dinghy to town. We read about a micro brewery called the Ruddy Duck and we wanted to check it out. We docked our dinghy at The Holiday Inn & Marina’s dinghy dock and rode our bike about 1.5 miles to the Brewery & Grill. They make the beer on site and you can see the operations as you enter the restaurant. We tried three of their eight award winning craft brews. I’m not as big a fan as Stan for these types of beers, but I had the Rud Light and it was very good. Stan enjoyed the IPA and the Imperial Belgian Wit. The food is also excellent here…they have won many awards for their crab cakes. We decided to have one of their signature pizzas, we chose the Mediterranean Pizza - Chicken, feta, Greek olives, pesto, pepperoncini, mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes. It was amazing, truly one of the best pizza we have ever had. Finding places like this is one of the best parts of cruising and exploring new places.
