Hmmm...I just saw this.

Ulladh and I arrived lasst night
, and are at the City dock. I think I saw Wayne's boat anchored.

I still have the grill that was going to cook rockDAWG's meats. If anyone coming by car wants burgers or other grilled food, bring it and I can cook it.

BTW, I do have 6 marinated chicken breasts, so we probably do not need more meat. But I've got the grill if someone wants burgers or hot dogs instead.

Denise - I hope you get this on a cell phone or sumthin. We had to move because of a wedding in the picnic area. We're next to Kilby's ice cream on the watefront, near Pell Gardens. Hope you find us. Ulladh & I are both docked at the free city dock.

Hey everyone, we're home. I woke up early so we snuck out at 4:45 to catch the peak current on the canal. (I hope our motor didn't wake you, Ulladh!) We did 8 knots through the canal and were at Reedy Point by 6:15. But it was chilly! Almost no breeze (and noticeably warmer) on the river, so we motored up with a little assist from the mainsail. Once again currents were very friendly as we easily did 6.5-7 knots the whole way, and into the slip at 10 am. Much quicker than I ever expected.

It was great meeting Wayne and Sally and seeing Ulladh again. Denise - You were right under our noses and we couldn't find you! We were in a section where they weren't serving food, so if you had pizza it sounds like you were in a different area from us.

For those who missed it, I hope to meet you all in the future. Chesapeake City is a nice meeting point, even though the slog through the canal is very long is you're fighting the current (as we did on Friday).

Really my fault for not bringing a phone number with me. duh.. (no blond jokes please!)

Now you know the true meaning of "go with the flow"

So hey, did you get a good close and personal view of a barge and tug on the canal?


Anyway, lets start planning a winter get together!

November?

rockDAWG is on a distinguished road
Hope you all have fun. I am sorry to miss you all.

After a non-stop 32 hrs sailing, got back to Annapolis at around 5 p.m. yesterday safe and sound but a bit tired. I battled 20 to 25 stiff wind at midnite just off St. Mary River and the Bay alone. At 6 am the steering cable broke and put another spin on this trip. I had fun and great experience to have.

Now I guess we will have the BBQ pork and garlic crab/crab cake for the next few days.

I forgot to mention a huge thank you to Ulladh for setting up our get-together, and for enduring all 19 pages of unsolicited advice on how to do it better. It's always hit-and-miss with these things, but fortunately we had an enthusiastic core group that managed to show up - and even find each other! (Then there was Denise's group that showed up but didn't manage to find us.)

I would be up for something in November, though only by car, since my boat will be hauled by then. One possibility might be the new Riverwinds Restaurant in New Jersey - it would give us a chance to scout out their cove for a possible anchorage rendezvous next year on the Delaware:
