"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Day 131 - Happy Birthday Kyle
Potomac River - Anchorage

Twenty five years ago today our voyage in life took on a new crew member and the journey ever since has been fantastic. Having children has been the biggest joy of my life. Our boys and now their wife's enrich our lives in so many ways and we are truly blessed to have them all. I really miss them today. Happy birthday, Kyle.

We are on our way up the Potomac to Washington DC. We figured if it's going to be hot, we might as well be somewhere that has plenty of inside things to do. The Chesapeake was a little rough this morning and we had a wild ride with 3-4 foot seas and 15-20 mph winds. We were lucky and things settled down in a few hours and the day turned out to be beautiful. We decided to take advantage of the decent temperature and humidity and anchor out...we figure it might be awhile before we get another chance. It is very peaceful at night in a quiet anchorage, you can hear the water slapping against the hull of the boat, fish jumping in the water and birds singing in the morning. I'm looking forward to cooler weather so we can do it more often.
