Virginia's Lil Ole Opry

What a fantastic day. We cruised about 4 hours from Urbanna to Stutts Creek, up the Piankatank River behind Gwynn's Island. We stayed at Mathews Yacht Club for $1/foot which is the MTOA yacht club reciprocity rate. Saw no less than 8 feet up to the yacht club. A wonderful small yacht club - pool, restaurant, bar, and a very accomodating club manager - Suzanne. We went there because we wanted to go to Donk's Theatre which we had read about in a cruising guide. Every other Saturday the Donk's Theater puts on Virginia's Li'l Ole Opry. We called, got $12 tickets a pick-up from one of the owners, a tour of the place, and 3 hours of fantastic country music. This is said by one who is not a country music fan - there was only one song that was 'twangy' and that made a difference. Best song of the night - 'Memphis Women and Fried Chicken' - you can't make this up, folks. Vicki will be searching for it to download to her IPod. She also liked the song "Tolerate" - great lyrics to both songs.
