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

May 20 – Lexington, MD (Solomons)

Lewis Creek – Anchorage 

“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.” —William Arthur Ward

Today we said good-bye to our new Monk friends and moved up the Bay towards Solomons. The weather couldn’t have been better…the water was flat, the sky bright blue and we even got to wear shorts part of the day. It was a wonderful day on the Chesapeake.

We are anchored in Lewis Creek, which is a beautiful small protective creek across the Patuxent River from Solomons. We have friends who live on the creek so we anchored in front of their home and spent the evening catching up with Ellen and George. It was a wonderful night enjoying good company, a delicious dinner and a great view of the river.
