It’s 83 miles from Atlantic Highlands to Atlantic City. We usually leave around 5am and get in around 5-6pm. Never seem to get a decent sail but at least the seas weren’t too bad. Saw three whales, a few dolphin and a very lost pelican – quite exciting!!
Left Cape May at sunrise past the Coast Guard station. Had wind and current with us all day up the Delaware and into the C & D Canal so kept going to Still Pond anchorage at the top of the Chesapeake. Managed to get in several hours of sailing and made really good time!! Another 80 miles!
Annapolis means fun and catching up with friends time! We spent four nights there then hopped over to the Eastern shore. Anchored in a creek south of St Michaels for a couple nights and a night off of Oxford.
Solomons brought us together with Anthony and Annette – m/v Magnolia. Annette picked me up in her rental and we were off to a beach for some glass hunting. Always great catching up with them!
As we make our way to the bottom of the Chesapeake and before we enter the ICW, we pull into Hampton, VA where Dan’s sister, Beth and hubs Rich come and pick us up for a couple nights in their beautiful Williamsburg home. Two days of family, laundry, provisioning, comfy bed and lots of hot running water – they really spoil us! Oh yea, and then there’s Rich’s grilled salmon!!!
In a couple days we’ll be entering mile zero of the ICW. October is here but it still feels like summer. Have to keep moving so we can avoid wearing shoes or sweatshirts😁. Happy fall, everyone!🍁
