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

Sept. 27 - Baltimore, MD


Henderson's Wharf Marina

Our water pump went out last night…after our showers luckily. Stan removed the pump this morning and took it to West Marine. It was still under warranty so no expense to us; in fact we made a little morning because they didn’t have the exact pump for a replacement. Not a bad deal! After we had the water running again we went to the Trawl Fest being held in Baltimore this weekend. One of the locals at the marina lent us their water taxi passes so we could get across the harbor without using our bikes. It probably didn’t save us any time, but it was fun riding on the taxi. Trawler Fest is a boat show that features trawlers only…no sailboat, fishing boats, speedboats or Sea Rays. There were booths with all types of info for boating and supplies for a boat, but we were there mainly to look at the boats. There were a lot of boats to look at…over 50 boats ranging in size from a small Ranger Tug 21 to a 70’ Hatteras. We definitely found boats we wouldn’t mind living on…so much luxury and space, but our little Monk is perfect for us.  It's always fun to look and dream!
