Baltimore, here we come... Underway

Well, they pull the docks out in Albany on the 24th, so after 8 weeks at home we needed a new place to be. I still have to work a bunch, so we figured I could become a frequent flier on Southwest since they have a direct flight from Baltimore to Albany. So.... we're underway as of this morning. Albany to Kingston to Haverstraw to NYC or Sandy Hook. We'll wait out the weather there (just missed a weather window from Yesterday to Wednesday) and then head down the coast, up the Delaware, through the C&D and to Baltimore in one shot (weather permitting). Anyway, info on our blog at s/v Pelican - Following A Dream, and you can follow us live (if you're bored) by clicking on the Follow Us link on the right side of our blog page.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Any idea where you're gonna tie her up and where you might be staying? We live in Baltimore inner harbor area (Locust Point to be exact) but we don't keep our boat there. Anyway would love to get together when you get down here.

Not sure where we're staying yet... I have to call around to the places in Baltimore, but we'd prefer to be near the inner harbor if we can get a decent price. Bloodhunter - we always love to visit!

Bon Voyage! Have a great trip and when you're settled in "Balmer" let everyone know where you tied-up.

All the Best...MGM

Hey that's quite a hike. Enjoy the trip.

One of the wonderful things about following the likes of LaBatt and family (LaBattery ?) is the geography lesson us non Americans get.

Loks like you have stopped for the evening.
Be safe.
