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

Aug. 28 - Baltimore, MD

Day 163 - Back to Normal
Anchorage Marina

This morning the rain had stopped, but the wind was still blowing and it was a bit stormy looking. By lunch the sun was out and so were a lot of people. There is a path that runs in front of the marina...it runs along most of the waterfront in Baltimore and it is well used by joggers, people walking their dogs and pushing strollers and by bicyclists. We even saw people walking on this path last night during the storm. Boaters were out getting their boats back to normal. l am enjoying the sun. We were lucky here and we fared much better than other parts of the coast. I'm sure we will see some of the damage when we cruise to the eastern shore tomorrow.

We walked down the street to Momma's on the Half Shell for dinner. It's located in a neighborhood of Baltimore called Canton. Canton is on the waterfront and use to be a busy shipping port. Now it is full of restaurants, bars and loft apartments. It was a busy place today...everyone was out enjoying the day after spending yesterday inside. We both had a Caesar salad and crab soup...both were very good.

We had eight lines on each side of the boat...could be why we didn't feel much rocking.
I found this picture on the Internet...this is Irene coming ashore in North Carolina. Pretty impressive!
