We did a trip down to Cape Charles over Labor Day week and stopped at Reedville in both directions. The plan heading home was Reedville to Solomon's Thursday, but strong northerlies were forecast for Friday, while Thursday the wind was out of the south and softening late in the day and evening, so we made a quick fuel stop in Solomon's and trucked on home to West River. Our timing for the fuel stop couldn't have been better as we trailed a shower across Pax River heading in and watched and heard the thunder cracking over Solomon's as we headed back out around 4PM. 15 hours underway, arriving at our slip around 11PM.I think we're heading from Deltaville to Reedville tomorrow and then, depending on WX, up to St. Marys - braving the mouth of the Potomac for the first trip - tides are right for our travel times. Back to Mill Creek on the Great Wicomico Saturday adn then home to Stingray Point on Sunday.
The next day Cove Point was reporting wind from 360 at 20G25. It would not have been a good day crossing the Potomac or going north and Saturday wasn't much better, so as exhausted as we were, the long day was the right choice for our situation.
