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

May 27 - Solomons, MD

Mill Creek - Anchorage

It was a perfect trawler day on the Chesapeake Bay...a light breeze, temperatures in the low 70s, plenty of sunshine and the tide was giving us a nice push most of the day. It just doesn't get much better. I hope we get a day like this when we're in the Atlantic Ocean heading to New York. We traveled over 100 miles today and we are now in one of our favorite anchorages near Solomons. I had stew cooking in the crockpot all day, so dinner was ready when we arrived. We sat on the flybridge relaxing and enjoying the view with our dinner. We've spent a lot of time cruising in the Chesapeake the last two years, so we've decided to head straight through the bay this year to New York and New England; we're ready to start exploring new cruising grounds. We'll spend more time in the Chesapeake on our way south at the end of the summer.
