Deep Creek Lake-Sweet Corn-Fratz Farm

Deep Creek Lake-Sweet Corn-Fratz Farm. ext time when you are coming into Deep Creek Lake, presumably from Interstate 68 via Route 219, you will find the sweetest of the sweet corn at Fratz Farm in-between Accident and McHenry. There are some things that are hyped up for flavor, like a bottle of wine or a restaurant recommendation, but they rarely live up to the immense words that are used to describe them. This small-town farm has no problem backing all the wonderful things that patrons say about them summer after summer regarding this delicious summertime vegetable. On your way into the lake you will notice the corn fields off to the right with many different signs with numbers on them. I am sure this is the different hybrids they grow each year propagating their sweet corn species. This cross-hybrid process normally works in producing a plant breed that maximizes size, drought and insect resistance as well as increased flowering times. Okay, I ramble. Bottom line…when you’re coming into town, you will pass the farm anyway, and the corn is out of this world delicious! Get two times more than you think you will eat because it will be a bigger hit than your main course!

Deep Creek Lake-Wakeboarding

Deep Creek Lake-Wakeboarding. As summer winds down and the kids start to get back to school, there is still time to enjoy one of my favorite summer sports without the mid-summer traffic normally on the lake. The boats on the lake become a little more sporadic helping in producing optimum wakeboard conditions which are no wake and pure glass. There is nothing more exciting than getting up on a wakeboard and having the perfect mirror lake reflecting the mountains off the water while doing 20 or so miles per hour. You don’t have to bust big airs to feel the stoke of wakeboarding. Just kick back with your friends and family and enjoy the experience. I often hear people saying, “Wow, I can’t believe summer is over already” or “summer flies by faster and faster each year as you get older”. Make it a priority to enjoy every moment you can with your family and friends in this gift of life that we are all fortunately given. Take my advice and put wakeboarding on your list of to-do’s in late summer, and find the treasures of memories that are awaiting you and your family.

Deep Creek Lake-Paddleboarding-The Sport-The Lifestyle-The History

Deep Creek Lake-Paddleboarding-The Sport-The Lifestyle-The History. I know that you know that this up and coming sport of Stand Up Paddleboarding (or SUP for short) is picking up steam among the masses, but unless you have tried it you will never know how simple it is to have a Zen like experience and keep your body in fantastic shape. Entry level folks need not be discouraged.  You do not have to be a triathlon athlete to start your way toward bliss in a sport that discreetly sneaks in fitness while putting emphasis on FUN!

 

There is a movement happening worldwide involving people who are pushing the limits to the many different activities this sport can touch. You’ll see SUP’s cruising lakes, bays, sounds and oceans, as well as surfing mighty to mild surf breaks.  There are racing Sup’s, fishing SUP’s, River Sup’s, and thankfully for you beginners, rental SUP’s!

Experience the QUIET GILDE in this video…

Stop! Let’s look at the history of the paddleboard..,.

Thomas Edward Blake is credited as the pioneer in paddleboard construction in the early 1930s.

Deep Creek Lake-Paddleboarding-The Sport-The Lifestyle-The History

While restoring historic Hawaiian boards in 1926 for the Bernice P. Bishop Museum, Blake built a replica of the previously ignored olo surfboard ridden by ancient Hawaiian aliʻi (kings). He lightened his redwood replica (olo were traditionally made from wiliwili wood) by drilling it full of holes, which he then covered, thus creating the first hollow board, which led to creation of the modern paddleboard. Two years later, using this same 16 ft (4.9 m), 120 lb (54 kg) board, Blake won the Pacific Coast Surfriding Championship, first Mainland event integrating both surfing and paddling. Blake then returned to Hawaii to break virtually every established paddling record available, setting half-mile and 100-yard records that stood until 1955.

In 1932, using his drastically modified chambered hollow board (now weighing roughly 60 lbs), which over the next decade he would tirelessly promote as a lifeguarding rescue tool, Blake out-paddled top California watermen Pete Peterson and Wally Burton in the first Mainland to Catalina crossing race (29 miles in 5 hours, 53 minutes). During the 1930s, Blake-influenced hollow boards (called “cigar boards” by reporters and later “kook boxes” by surfers) would be used in roughly equal proportion to solid plank boards for both paddling and surfing until the new Hot Curl boards led wave-riding in a new direction. For paddleboarding, however, the basic principles of Blake’s 1926 design remain relevant even today.

Now that you know more about the history of paddleboarding, lets gets back to how it can relate to you here at Deep Creek Lake. Go to Deep Creek Marina Rentals and rent a 12’0” (which is the largest) Doyle paddleboard and launch the board by getting on your knees and  slowly paddling a few strokes on the left then the right side. Get comfortable in balancing and paddling around the quiet coves nearby the rental docks until you feel confident enough to stand up. There is a handle to pick up the board directly in the center that can serve as a guide point as to where you stand. Stand up dead center on the board and slowly pull the paddle easily through the water until you gain a little glide through the water. As you gain speed, you will also gain control just as you do as you start peddling a bike. Now you are all set to start to begin to follow a new road in life that may become a passionate addition.

Slow down and GET PADDLING short video.

This morning before work I got out on the lake at 6am sharp and was rewarded with a windless, glassy lake which makes for optimum conditions for many water sports. A friend and I paddled the length of McHenry Cove to the 219 bridge and then turned up toward the direction of the DCL Dam. The sun was peeking through the clouds and there was not a boat on the lake to interrupt our morning therapy. On the way back in, we saw a magnificent Bald Eagle gliding over us in search of his morning snack. I can only think of one other time that I saw a Bald Eagle here at the lake. Take some time out of your busy life before or after work to discover and submerge yourself into a sport that may have you hooked for a lifetime.
