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

Aug. 15 - East Port, MD

Day 150 - Rain and Relaxation
Back Creek - Mooring Field

We had a relaxed morning in Annapolis...there were only a few people wondering around, it was much quieter today than this weekend. Stan found a marine store in East Port that carries the oil and fuel filters he needed, so we decided to move to the mooring field in Back Creek. It's only two mile from Annapolis, so there was no reason to be in a hurry this morning. We had time to visit with other cruisers, get a pump out and I went back to Kilwin's to buy more of their wonderful fudge. The weather as we left Annapolis was partly sunny and quite nice, but we could tell the rain was on the way. Dark clouds seemed to be all around us.

After picking up a mooring ball and having lunch, Stan dinghied ashore and got the supplies we needed. We spent the rest of the day watching it rain, reading, napping, surfing the web, feeding the ducks and watching TV. Sometimes the stress of this life is almost too much to handle!
