Just checked my photo albums on the laptop - much more accessible than the pilot logbook - it was July of last year. How time flies! We had a nice day-trip visit last summer. Pics attached.
I learned last time I was there, maybe 20 years ago, that Tangier has a way of entering hibernation for the winter that can catch the unwary off guard. Made an overnight trip right after Labor Day only to discover after our arrival that the B&B we were staying at was the only place on the island to eat besides the grocery store where we scrounged milk and nabs for "supper." There were no other eats to be had beyond the B&B's breakfast the next morning. As we had our hearts set on crab cakes and the like, it was a major disappointment.
Moral: call ahead and see what will be open on the island on the date of your planned trip. You may be glad you did.
