Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We had a nice broad reach upriver this morning. We grabbed a mooring ball in a cove, and rode to shore on "Take Two," our new little dinghy (just a raft + trolling motor). The sail back was very vigorous, but beating into a strong breeze was still HOT because of the sun. I had hoped to maybe stay overnight in the cove sometime this weekend, but it's too bloody HOT.

This place is not nearly as quaint as the towns on the Chesapeake, nor is it anywhere near as cool as island hopping on the BVI. But it's about a close as we can come to that experience around the Philly area, so it was a nice time that we will repeat in the future.
