Sailing Inspiration

Earlier this summer, I posted about sailing on Deep Creek Lake and inspiration for my sailboat painting. If you ever wanted to learn more about this group of ardent sailors, an excellent place to start is Ellen Tran’s weekly article in The Garrett County Republican. Ellen reports the weekly race and sailing activity, providing enough detail and photos to feel like you’re almost there. Her latest Sailing the Best View is a good one. Enjoy.

Corner Store

Depending on which part of the lake you’re familiar with, you might recognize Corner Store.  A family store and gas station, known as Schmidt’s Service Station, used to sit at the corner of Turkey Neck Road and 135 near the southern end of Deep Creek Lake.  At one time, we could stop in for a loaf of bread, eggs or other items when passing by.  Corner Store is included in the Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County Gallery.
