Okay, I'm missing the typo...and I hate to find I've made a typo...please explain.
Just a quick update! I forgot to mention when we left on the trip down the Delaware River, my racor filter finally quit filtering all those little 10 micronites! So there we were, Michele who still is learning to sail and me changing the filter cartridge! 20 mins! (gotta be a speed record there!) Anyway we chugged along for the rest of the day and night (the 17th) On the head of Delaware bay in the wee hrs of the morning we were in 4-6ft seas! Yeehaw! seasaw! rockabyebaby?
Cheseapeak city was nice as always. Made it to Great Oaks, Naw! I wasn't nervous entering the inlet! That night the weather really went bad! 30-40 mph (not for me) So we stayed and waited until Monday morning. We had to endure following seas of 2-3 ft all the way to the Bay bridge. Suddenly the winds died and we had to wing and wing south for most of the day in much calmer water. When we rounded bloody point we were able to sail all the way into St, Michaels harbor area. We arrived in St Michaels that evening. Still here! sitting in the tap room at Carpenter Street saloon. it's on main street a short walk up from the town dock. Leaving for Annapolis in the morning! But! We may drop the hook at dobbins island. All for now!
