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

Sept. 26 - Solomons, MD

Day 192 - Back on the Water
Mill Creek - Anchorage

We got a later than usual start this morning since we needed to get something back from another MTOA member...plus it was a bit foggy and everyone else seemed to be leaving at the same time. For anyone left at the marina today it was going to be a little lonesome. We headed back across the Chesapeake to Solomons . The weather cleared up before lunch and we even had bright sunshine by afternoon. We haven't seen the sun in the past ten days, so it was a welcomed site. It turned out to be a great day to be on the water.

Our friends Pam and Don also left today and are anchored close by us on Mill Creek. They are on their way to Charleston, South Carolina where they will spend the winter. They have been living on their boat full time for the past few years. We took the dinghy and went to their boat for happy hour. We've enjoyed getting to know them. We came back to the boat and fixed a steak for dinner...no TV receptions in this area so we worked on our computers. We had a beautiful swan come by for a visit. I fed him a little bread...hope it didn't hurt him. He seemed to like it and stayed very close to the boat for quite awhile.

Leaving Cambridge this morning
Cove Point Lighthouse...we've posted a picture of it in August when we pasted it the first time.
The Air Force was playing war games today...good thing we didn't get in their way!
Coming in to Solomons Island
Pam and Don on Gallivant
Our little visitor..it was so cool to see him so close.
