Saw only 4 boats and 4 ships. 2.5 hours later and we have the hook down in one of our favorite South River Creeks....Aberdeen. Harness is a lot of people's favorite but we find it confining. Beside one of the people who owns a McMansion recognizes us every time we anchor off their place and comes down their dock and waves to us.

Two years ago they invited us to dinghy ashore for drinks in the water view screened in Gazebo. Really neat people who have a 51 ft approx. Bristol docked outside.

We are enjoying hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps to take the chill off.

Fresh tuna steaks for dinner later.

Haleakula sighting!
Pics from Sunday. I thought I recognized the name of your boat when I was sailing down the South River toward Thomas Point. When I looked at the photos at home, it was confirmed. Great day in the morning. Winds clocked and picked up quite a bit in the afternoon.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

So I'm psyched; we stay in the water all year around at Anchorage Marina but there's all the commissioning things to do: changing the oil in the Yanmar, fuel filters, checking the rig, sanitizing the water tanks and filling them, cleaning out stuff that accumulates (who's going to need an electric heater in the summer?). By the end of today, it should be finished! ready to go sailing!

We're heading down around 4 for an evening sail. Maybe we'll see you there.

Jim ,

We saw your Pearson as we motorsailed out to the Bay. My wife spotted the Pearson logo as you guys were taking out the river. You guys were looking good.

We had spent a really nice night in Aberdeen Creek. And had a good sail back up to Whitehall before it got a little blustery ( to say the least) . Hope we run into each other again soon. I monitor 16 in case you want to hail us

Thanks for the great picture.

As a quick, easy meal I often broil salmon with a little egg and oil coating, with potlatch seasoning, a sprinkling of parmesan and some super-finely diced onion on top. I'd like to try some sort of a glaze next.
It's cool being a cook. Anyone and everyone can do it. You don't have to be a professional chef. Dave has a good philosophy in keeping his delivery foods well fed. A happy crew is one which eats well. He has shown it can be good comfort foods and snacks.

Food is a great uniter of people and great conversation. Like I said I post our dinners hoping it may give other weekend sailors like us to try attempt different things. I have throughout my career written for and published recipes for years, though to tell you the truth like most chefs, if I need to give a recipie I have to think about the proportions . To tell the truth I have always enjoyed a good grilled NY Strip, Tri-tip
, hot dog or burger. As I have aged I have tried to eat a lot more"healthily" . Been able to drop over 35 lbs in 12 months, with more to go. I love the "natural " taste of most things which I think is a good thing. My mentors drummed that into me. I love veggies and fruit. Trouble was I love pie and carbs too ( I have cut them down drastically)

So many great salmon type glazes from Chinese sauces, bourbon , balsamic vinegar, curries, that really enhance the taste or accompany it. Don't be afraid to experiment. What's the worst that can happen.
Lots of people are afraid to cook fish and tend to overlook it. Good for you for doing that.

Thank you. Surgery went well. As of Monday the knee to ankle gauze and ace bandage are off and I'm down to 2 bandaids over my sutures. I only needed the painkillers for the first 18 hours and I'm diligently following my post-op exercise instructions. Unfortunately Fluff and my doctor are not on the same page as I am with my schedule to ditch the crutches. I say one week past surgery, they say four. One of us needs a reality check.

John should be heading to the boat on Saturday to check on her and commune a bit. I'll compromise with my elders and wait another week to head down since I can't climb on board anyway.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Had a little bit of wind in the upper bay yesterday, got in a few hours of nice sailing before it died about 4 p.m.. Enjoyed a great Italian sub for lunch, washed down with a Coors Light. Air temperature was a bit chilly beneath the Bimini until the wind died, then it warmed up to the mid 70s. Water is still pretty chilly in the bay's upper reaches.

When I got back to the marina and put the sail cover on and stored the other gear, my lungs and back gave out. Sad to say, I think my sailing days are just about over.

Yes, but at this stage of my lung disease, it's no longer safe for me to do the minor things, such as walking forward to anchor, take care of the dock lines, etc... Yesterday, after raising the main, my oxygen saturation dropped to 87 percent, which is quite low, and I was not as stable as I should have been walking back to the cockpit and had to hang on to the boom and bimimi frame. So, I guess I'll just spend what little time I have left playing music and gardening.

All the best,

Gary
