its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Sept. 22 – Baltimore, MD

Anchorage Marina

“I have sea foam in my veins, for I understand the language of waves.” —Le Testament d’Orphee
I've neglected the blog this past week. There just isn't a lot to write about when you spend 15-17 hours a day cruising in the Atlantic and very little to take pictures of, except the sunrises and sunsets, which we've seen from the flybridge as we're cruised along. Since leaving Newport we've traveled almost 500 miles, most of that in three very long days, although we did have two down days waiting on weather...still uneventful and not worthy of a blog post.

Today we had a short cruise from the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake into Baltimore. We're not sure how long we'll be here, but for now we're catching up with friends, cleaning the boat and enjoying the luxuries that come from being tied to a dock.

We enjoyed beautiful sunsets in Sandy Hook, Cape May and our Still Pond anchorage. The rewards to a long day on the water.
Heading into Baltimore
Francis Scott Key Memory Buoy...the story is that this is where he was on a ship when he watched the battle at Fort McHenry and wrote the words to the Star-Spangled Banner.

Baltimore Harbor is a very busy place
