To back up we had a good trip up the Chesapeake this summer. We had two good sails of greater than 60 nm and that got us up to Tighlman Island. Along the way we stopped at Mill Creek (a favorite of ours) and then a new harbor just north of Knapp's Narrows. Both proved to be excellent and we even found an old Waterman hangout, Lowe's Warf. It is also a weekend party joint but we had a good light dinner and a couple of cocktails, just to make sure all was well…..

Since we shave been around Annapolis we have anchored in the Magothy, sailed up to Worton Creek and for the last few days we have been hanging out in either Back Creek or Spa Creek. Right now it just feels good not moving and relaxing.
|Oh look who is in town!|

Last night was "beer can" racing in Annapolis. We had the best seats in the house, so long as you didn't mind sharing the water in front of the Navel Academy with 100+ boats! Was lots of fun to watch from the swim platform on Nati.

As mentioned haul-out is coming down the road. We will try to keep track of the work but we'll be somewhat slow with updates as when we go to the east shore, Internet is not the best. Time will tell…..
|And another perfect sunset!|
