Let’s meet in the middle: Floating fun at Fletcher Bay

Think they need a bigger boat? They might need a bigger bay instead.

Fletcher Bay neighbors held a floating block party on Labor Day, and drew about 60 people from around the bay on every sort of boat/board/inflatable imaginable.

There were kayaks, paddleboards, inflatables, sailboats and motorboats. Residents of the Fletcher Bay community — which is fairly divided by geography into the Battle Point side and the Woodbank/Fletcher Landing side — came out to meet their new and old at the floating party and enjoy the little bay together.

Organizers said the water was a natural meeting point for folks from all sides of the bay’s shore, and a lovely place to be on a beautiful day.

The group also enjoyed a floating snack table, a dinghy cooler and lots of great conversation to celebrate the end of summer.
