What a BEAUTIFUL Day on the Bay 10/23/10

Today, 10/23/10, was the perfect October day. Warm temps (in the 60s) and nice wind, 10-14. We are anchored in Rhode River for the night and plan to enjoy tomorrow too. This is why we keep a boat and can decide to go sailing when the mood suits us. We cooked a nice pot of chili and will have eggs and bacon for breakfast. And now thanks to the magic of my phone, I can tell all my SN friends what a good time we are having. If you must see where I am take a look at my SPOT position.

Enjoy the day tomorrow, it may be one of the last stellar days this season.

Cheers! We enjoyed some day sailing today, we have some obligations tomorrow that kept us from a weekend out but sure was a wonderful day today As we made our way out the river the bay was filled with about 30 boats all flying their Spinnakers heading North...what a site!!!

Enjoy the night on the hook, moon should be beautiful as well

Joe, we were anchored in about the same spot last night (Friday) after a spirited day sailing up there from Herring Bay in what I believe were 20 - 25 knot winds. That was fun, but today was indeed perfect.

Indeed, gorgeous day!! Went for a sunset cruise on a friends new-to-them classic wooden picnic boat. If I did it right, here's the sunset we saw over Annapolis:
and minutes later, moonrise over the Bay Bridge:

I was also..

Out sailing on Saturday with a friend from the area. We sailed out of Mt Vernon Md., on the Wicomico river, for some daysailing to nowhere on the Tangier Sound. What a glorious day of sun wind and a steady 6-7MPH. It is nice to get the old girl in some real wind with all the rags up. It is not often that my Van de Stadt 40 ketch gets to have the North Sea like winds that she was made for.

We spent the weekend in the Chester....Corsica....great sail over Saturday,,,screeching broad reach back today at over 8.

The full mooon over the marshes last night had some real bats flying around it. We were anchored nexty to the old Russian mansion. Kind of reminded me of the Adams Family...hahah.

Tom, did you have any problems getting back in to Herring Bay (HHH North) today. There were radio reports that because of the very low water there were 2 boats blocking the entrance (one coming in and one going out) that had the harbor blocked.
