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

Sept. 13 - Baltimore, MD

Friends from Home...almost!
Henderson's Wharf Marina

Our plan today was to visit with Jim and Joan Auld, friends of ours from home. They are traveling in their 17' Casita RV. Our paths have finally crossed, so they found an RV park not far from here. They were on their way to the boat when Jim started feeling bad...long story short, they ended up in the ER instead of getting here. Luckily he is doing fine, but we missed our opportunity to visit. Their RV Park is booked for the rest the weekend so they have to move on. Hopefully our paths will cross again soon

We found a little pizza place in Fell's Point we’d planned to take Jim and Joan for lunch, called Bop Brick Oven Pizza. It's another spot that has been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dive so we wanted to check it out. Jim you missed a great pizza, but you were on our mind as we enjoyed our lunch.

Our radar hasn't worked this summer...not a problem for us this year, since we never needed it. We're thinking about cruising in the New England area next summer and will definitely need one. A man here in the marina knew of a good used one, so Stan spent the afternoon checking it out. We may have to take a short cruise soon to give it a sea trail. I spent the afternoon doing a little shopping and exploring the area on my bike. This evening we relaxed on the boat and enjoyed the wonderful weather and great views of the water.

  1. Great to see that BOP is still going. I don't know if its changed locations but I went to BOP first in 1990. Great stuff, some of the best and most unique pizza I've ever had. On another note I've been looking at 80's era Monks for my family's first boat. I'd love to chat "offline" at gbtormey @ gmail dot com
