Final post 2012
90* and no wind
24 June 2012 | Oak Harbor Marina, Pasadena, MD
Dear Friends and Family, fellow travelers,
The last leg of our trip back to the Chesapeake was more eventful than we might have imagined. As you might know it is the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. Baltimore is the home of Ft. McHenry where the Star Spangled Banner was written. Anyhow those tall ships, the ones we saw in Norfolk and many Navy ships had been in Baltimore and the day we arrived they were going south back to Norfolk. The pictures reflect all kinds, most with no names, curious.
We had anchored out in Reedville awaiting the north wind to switch around and so we saw the ship the Picton Castle. We anchored out in Solomons as well as the Rhode River and then made our way north of the Bay Bridge to our new home, Oak Harbor Marina off the Patapsco on Rock Creek.
We are now off loading the stuff we have accumulated in our 5 months and this week we will be off for Michigan and hopefully cooler weather.
Check out the pictures of the Navy ships. the Picton Castle, the Thomas Pt. lighthouse and the Bronzert Family. We had a nice 2 day break in Washington, DC with Jess and Greg and their boys, Kevin and Ben.
Thanks for reading and going along with us on our journey.
Best to all,
Mike and Ivy
P.S. From Mike:
This is a very bittersweet time, ending the cruise is a very sad time each year, it would be so much easier to just keep going and not have to make these transitions. I have to keep in mind that cruising part time is better than sitting at home all year on the couch and wishing I could do something exciting with my life. All this to say it has been fun, and I can't wait to resume the adventure!
