My vacation has been pretty damp...rain almost every day. We have enjoyed the SSCA GAM, the Choptank, Chester, Wye, Miles, Rhode and the Bay itself. This is all going someplace, I swear.
While spending the night in one of our favorite anchorages, Dividing Creek on the Wye, all night long we were haunted with noisy bubbles hitting our hull. Now these were bubbles loud enough to wake me up and I am not a light sleeper. Along with the popping bubbles, there were sounds like sticks hitting our hull. At one point I did go up on the cockpit and the other two boats had not dragged, nor had we. Many questions????? The next AM I rowed over to one of the other vessels asking if they were also heard this noise. Nope. They said it must have been aliens. No lights in the sky or water....?????
Later in the morning, I pulled the cqr along with our trusty chain rode and sure enough for the first time in daylight, a bubble broke the surface larger than a basketball. POP! Now, Dividing Creek is linned wirh large diciduous trees and I am sure there are loads of leaves and branches and probably whole trees rotting down below but this was a new one. The bubbles were only evident at night. Also it should be noted that the anchor chain was stained black! A few more nights at anchor and it is still black.
So does anyone know what kind of spooky channel we visited? Were we being haunted? Has anyone else experienced this?
Now that we are totally rusted, we will head home this weekend to get ready for work next week. This rain has got to stop sometime.
