This sounds like it was a great trip... Do you think you would have liked more time so you were not on a tight schedule? You certainly hit a lot of great spots in LIS... and the weather was pretty good for you I suspect.
Sounds like you have a super (current) electronics package. And equipment reviews?
My old motto... it's never too late to feck up.... so keep your guard up.
It has been a great trip , one of the highlights was meeting you. I agree with you we would have liked more time but coordinating three weeks off with Donna and my schedule was difficult enough.
I have 6 more weeks to use this year, but after being gone three weeks in a row my business starts to sufer. Soon this will be a non issue as we will be retired and have unlimited time.
The trip from Annapolis itself is 4 days to Atlantic Highlands of an average of 65 miles. And the same back. That’s 8 of our 21 days. As we have in a he past seven tried to concentrate on on or two areas. A three day stopover in Mystic, with side trips to Newport and Block. We got to anchor in Old Saybrooke, visit Northport , Port Washington, Cold spring Harbor. Saw the Nautilus and Teddy Roosevelt’s house. That’s a lot of touristy stuff.
Ate our fill of cold water lobster and seafood, though we have good seafood in Annapolis of a different type. Had some seriously good meals. One with you , the dive at the ferry in Pt Judith, Fords in Mystic I’d recommend to others. Also the Red Parrot in Newport....best lobster roll.
Best of all my wife and I got to spend some quality time together. This is always the goal of our vacations. I haven’t thought about work or even read one e mail for two weeks.
She improved her sailing skills in many types of situations and weather. She has much more understanding of currents , anchoring in large tidal changes, and sail trip in increasing winds. We’ve gotten to sail a lot.
With 6 more days to go. Been a great trip weather wise too.
To others if they get a chance to meet up with you do it. To you you have a buddy in Annapolis should you ever venture this way to explore the Chesapeake. A very different experience with many anchorages everywhere and virtually no moorings. Great towns like Havre de Grace, Rock Hall, Baltimore , St Micheals, Solomon’s, Yorktown to name a few. Lots of history too as the first colony Jamestown is at it mouth.
