What a day. It rained on us. We got a little wind, then the water was still. It was a mish-mash of wind changes and rain fall.
We are in North East, MD at the most Northern tip of Chesapeake Bay.
Even though the weather wasn’t perfect, it was a great day to learn how to maneuver a basic keel boat. Tomorrow we get into navigation maps and expect beautiful 15 naut winds plus plenty of sunshine.
Our day began with fresh melon with blueberries. Blueberry muffins. ELT breakfast sandwiches (Egg, Lettuce, Tomato). When we came in from the water at 12:20pm, lunch was on the table. Tuna salad on lettuce and tomato, with celery and chips. Chocolate chip cookies were offered for dessert.
Our afternoon sailing session began donning the rain gear as the sky threatened. Luckily there was no thunder and no lightening so Ted and I told Don we were game to suffer nature if he was. We stayed on the water until 4:30 pm.
Tomorrow, with the sunshine, I will take some pics on the boat.
Following a full day of tacking and jibing, we were hungry. We high tailed it into town to experience the local restaurant of note, “Woody’s”.
Get ready because you won’t believe how much these two sailors ate.
Tomorrow we will try to have more control over our food consumption but Ted offered a challenge when we were in DC. He said, “lets see who can gain the most weight while we are on vacation”. I said “I’ll win.”
By the way, look what was on the bar at every setting. Click on the pic to enter the giveaway.
Tonight however, we do have a guest in our bedroom…
Good night all. “Red skys at night, sailors delight. Red skys in the morning, sailors take warning”. Heard that one?
