Bayview was inundated with tourists, weekenders and such this just past weekend. Restaurants and other venues were slammed as a reduced capability without the Captain's Wheel continues to be felt in the community.
One observation is that while speed boats, ski boats and the like have suddenly appeared in Scenic Bay, they were totally absent just two or three years ago. Also, flagrant safety violations abound. It would appear that those that can afford to buy fast boats, don't necessarily know how to operate them safely.
Tonight, Sunday, the bay is clear and calm. The boaters have gone home and you can hear fish swimming by, as the silence is awesome. After the tourists leave and the silence descends, I have to believe this is why we live here.
