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

April 25 – Solomons, MD

Long Day on the Water
Mill Creek – Anchorage

We were up at the crack of dawn and were on our way by 6:30…breakfast was served on the flybridge after we got underway. We knew we were going to have a long day…in fact it was our second longest day since we started cruising. It was beautiful, but chilly and we wanted to get as far north in the Chesapeake as we could. The weather is going to deteriorate tomorrow, with rain and wind that will be around for several more days. We traveled 95 miles to Solomons…we are anchored in the same anchorage we used last fall on our way south. It’s a nice spot with plenty of room and close to town. If the weather is nice enough tomorrow we will take the dingy ashore…actually we need a part for the throttle on the flybridge, so I know we’ll get to town…rain or shine! There is no TV reception in this area and no friends with us this time, so we surfed the web a little and made it an early night. This should be our last long day until we head for New York in June.

Getting an early start to the day has it's benefits
My herb garden...Stan has attached the containers to the window sill with tire wraps. Maybe they won't go flying across the deck this year.
