Tangier U a liny place-less lhan three miles long and a mile wide and standing just about seven (7) feet above sea level. But it is utterly, charming and fascinating. We arrived in Crisfield in mid-afternoon and after getting comfortably settled in our mole! (standing in a grore of magnificent pines) proceeded "downtown" lo find the pier where Ihe boat was supposed lobe docked lhal would take us over to the island. We found more lhan we bargained for. We learned that we were jus! a few days early for lhe slarl of the summer cruise season out I o Tangier, but we also learned that the mail packet boat, under the command of Capt. Rudy Thomas, made daily Iripslolhe island and thai we could go as passengers il we were al the Town Dock al 12:30 p.m. the next day. And while the mail boal was far from being as luxurious as the "Sleven Thomas," which is lhe summer season cruise boal, it was to us perhaps a lot more fun. We watched as supplies were stashed in the cargo hull below, as lhe mail truck came up and delivered its canvas bags of correspondence and packages and even a United Parcel truck which brought other packages lo be slowed below. There were stacks of produce and crates of eggs and sacks of potatoes and all sorts of things piled on the dock, and the young men of Ihe crew made short work of them, gelling them stowed in shorl order. And then we were pulling away from the dock, out into Tangier Sound (a part of the vast Chesapeake Bay) and on our way to the island. Please luni to Page 12 'onn. -'.'PI) Ally.
