We attended the second River Concert of the 2010 season, called “Trills and Thrills”, on Friday June 25th at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, featuring the Chesapeake Orchestra. From front row seats we could hear the music well and see all of the musicians close-up. Tourists and local music lovers should be sure to take advantage of the summer concerts. You could easily spend a lot of money to hear musicians of this quality. The surroundings on the large grassy green are pleasant and divided into sections from the “Serious Listening” up front, to the ”Serious Socializing” in back. There are even food and craft vendors. Each concert has a different theme, and either presents a well known singer or instrumentalist and/or some excellent local talent. And you can’t beat the price: free! But you’ll probably want to give a small donation. Just be sure to bring a chair or blanket. To learn more about this particular concert and see my review visit the Bay Net here.

Like last year, I decided to do reviews of the River Concerts at St. Mary's College of Maryland on The Bay Net, our local online newspaper. The concerts are wonderful and we usually sit up front to see and hear all the action. I'll probably be writing the articles every week for the next 7 weeks.

I am adding a photo of Buzz’s Marina to my collection of St. Mary’s County photographs, taken on a lovely autumn day last fall. Owned by Mike and Christy, their Marina is located on St. Jerome’s Creek, just off route 5 in Ridge, MD. They offer quite a few services to local customers including boat storage, boat slips, a boat ramp, gas, a camp store and camper storage. We have visited a number of times and can state that they are very friendly, can help you with boating and fishing information and are convenient for visitors to Point Lookout and Southern St. Mary’s County. For more information, visit their website at http://www.buzzsmarina.com/ . Merchandise and photos of Buzz's Marina can be purchased from Calm Reflections at http://calmreflections.dotphoto.com/

The Maui Ocean Center had some interesting exhibits including lots of sharks fed by a diver, a 750,000 gallon acrylic tunnel to walk through, sea turtles and a tank full of black lit jellyfish. (featured below) We enjoyed our visit very much.
