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

Sept. 22 - Cambridge, MD

Day 188 - MTOA Rendezvous
Cambridge Municipal Yacht Basin

Today was the official start to the MTOA Rendezvous. We attended a welcoming meeting this morning, but skipped the Chesapeake Bay Foundation presentation. We had signed up to host lunch onboard for a couple who were attending the rendezvous by car. So after the opening meeting I went back to the boat to get lunch ready. It was fun having someone for lunch; we had Cheesy Corn Chowder, turkey sandwiches and a wonder crab dip that was provided by another MTOA member. Anna, Trapper and they cute little dog Gremlin were our guest for lunch and we had a great time.

This afternoon we attended several more seminars, but the most interesting one was on cruising Maine. The information may come in handy next summer. It would certainly be a new experience for us. A lot different than the areas we have been in so far, but it would be a beautiful place to go. We will spend time this winter researching and planning where our adventure will take us next summer.

This evening we had a social hour and then a chip in dinner. Everyone brought a dish to share and the steaks were provided. We had enough food to feed at least a hundred more people. Everything was delicious. We are enjoying this group of people very much and they definitely know how to have a good time.

Some boaters have dogs...some have cats. This one really liked watching everyone walk by.
