    Junk sailors from near and far gathered for a lovely autumn weekend at the Chesapeake Bay dock of Mike & Debbie Lyons. The trees of this mid-Atlantic region were dressed in fall colors that matched the sails and hulls of the junk rig boats.  Saturday morning we admired the boats and asked many questions about their details.  Saturday afternoon we went for lazy sail down the creek in almost no wind and enjoyed messing about in boats.  Saturday evening we gathered around Kokachin's immense salon table and traded stories and fellowship.  

    Sunday we will meet again and say farewell as the boats and sailors scatter to the four winds.  

    More complete report to follow. 

    Here are a few photos:
