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

Sept. 24 - Cambridge, MD

Day 190 - Great Experience
Cambridge Municipal Yacht Basin

We've had a great time at the MTOA Rendezvous...met great people, learned a little, ate too much and laughed a lot. We really enjoyed talking to other people who have cruised the same waters, experienced some of the same wonderful things we have and understand the way we feel about our adventure. When we talk about a special place we've been, a restaurant we've eaten at or a beautiful anchorage we've enjoyed...they know exactly what we're talking about. Kindred soles even though we are from so many different places. Except for the people who are originally from the Chesapeake area and still have jobs, most are heading south when they leave Cambridge. Some will leave there boats in ports further south and go home for the winter and others will spend the winter on their boats in a warmer port in Florida or the Bahamas. Most seem to have plans to head this way again in the spring. I'm sure we will look for a few of these people when we get back to the boat next year.

We had a wonderful dinner at the Yacht Club Friday night and they had a Sea Hag contest...this is one of the Sea Hags...very entertaining
