Getting ready to enjoy a beautiful sunset...it doesn't get much better
Great to hear. Sounds like a good time. Good eats too.

Brokesailor will be coming through on Scaliwag 37 Crealock, back from the LI Sound tomorrow AM . Keep a lookout for Jorge and Marcella.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Anchored in the Magothy with friends and their Tartan 3700 with a nice cool breeze even though its78 its not too bad. Had cold soft tacos filled with cumin BBQ chicken, snow peas, diced red pepper, scallions, spinach and black beans infused with a sesame oil- peanut butter- lime dressing. Washed down with a few DosEquis. Great fireworks display also

Good close haul sail today with 12-15 knott winds.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

What a great weekend! Yea it was freaking hot as hell but the nights were comfortable and there was good wind.

After the fast sail up the bay Friday to Worton we decided to just stay put and enjoy the fresh water swims and bird watching. Saturday we took the dingy in to Worton Creek Marina to get some ice cream and check out the progress on the Burger Yacht the owner has been working on for years. Love that marina and ships store BTW, one of my favorites on the bay, has such charm and character. The Bald Eagles are such amazing birds to watch, we saw them frequently. We were able to get quite close to one, she was probably a full grown female (adult females are known to be larger than males, who knew). Also saw either a Golden Eagle or a immature Bald Eagle, not sure. Its great to see them back in such numbers on the bay, for a while now I learned. The water in Worton Creek is so nice to swim in, although not so refreshing at about 84 degrees but better than the 100 plus in the sun

The fireworks Saturday night were fantastic from Worton Creek, there was a great show in what I think was Middle River, I could not believe how high they were going. The other was much closer, I think, Mears Marina in Fairlee Creek? ah...doesnt matter, but they all were really cool, accented by the heat lighting to the West. The outside anchorage of Worton has now become a tradition for us on the 4th, it really is a prime vantage point for fireworks shows around the bay!

Sundays sail home started with us sailing off anchor, a first in a long time! It was the perfect conditions to try it out again, not many boats around and wind was a steady 10 kts. All went just as I planned and was a good feeling of accomplishment. I am also so pleased with my new battery set up, the amp hours I have now!!!! No need to run the engine as often like we used to. We ran the engine for about 10 minutes when we left Friday and didn't start it again until we approached Rock Creek entrance three days later, gotta love that (quick thanks to Mainsail and Chef2sail for their assistance and knowledge regarding my new DC set up) Next...solar and/or wind and we'll be ready to cruise long term.

All in all, amid some extreme heat, it was the perfect long weekend! Looking forward to many more this year.

PS...should I be worried, I think my kids are part fish?

You have the nicest girls. Be glad they can amuse themselves swimming Worton/ Still Pond is the perfect place. Its clean there and no nettles. We went swimming in Worton last week. Saw the eagles and the red tailed hawks. Saw an eagle with a 4 foot snake flew overhead.

I noticed they went right to the pool when you got back today. They listen to me when I told them a while ago that when your ad and mom bring you back.....ask them to take you for a dip in the pool. LOL

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

I think that might have been an Eel, we saw several dead on the beach?

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

In addition to watching the fireworks from Skipper's on Wednesday, we managed to get out for a sail with friends on Sunday. The winds were a real treat for July. Hope it's a good sign for the rest of the year - knock on wood.

Happy 237th, America!! | On Board Cordelia
