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

April 29 – St. Michaels, MD

Perfect Day
San Domingo Creek – Anchorage

We woke up to a gorgeous day…clear blue, beautiful skies.St. Michaels is having their annual Wine Fest this weekend, so the town was full of people and activities. We decided not to buy tickets to the tastings…although I’m sure we would have enjoyed the variety they had. I read somewhere they would be pouring over 300 wines during the two day festival. We had lunch at Marcoritaville (Marcos), a little place on Talbot Street, where we sat outside and watched the people go by while enjoying the wonderful day. We spent the afternoon wandering through a few shops, watching people, riding our bikes to the harbor and tasting a few locally made beers at the Eastern Shore Brewing Company. We had a great day in one of our favorite little Eastern Shore towns…this part of Maryland is so picturesque. In all our travels on the boat…the Eastern Shore of Maryland has been my favorite.

We finally had a warm enough evening to sit on the flybridge and relax, while we fixed dinner on the grill. This was a picture perfect day on the boat.

We are the only ones in our anchorage, so it was the perfect time for a dinghy driving lesson.
