Twenty Seven Hundred Miles!

We had to wait to fuel up and pump out at Herrington Harbor when they opened at 9am. We were underway by 9:30 and spent the day motoring into northerly winds that ranged from 8 to 10 early on to 15 to 20 in the early afternoon. Nevertheless, we were docked in our slip in Queens Landing by 2pm. It took [...]

Herrington Harbor, North Beach, MD

We had a wonderful night in Mill Creek, Va. We had a very brief gust of wind come through at about bed time, but in about 3 minutes it was gone. We were up and underway at 7am with a planned destination of a marina in Solomon’s Maryland. However, we were going to be docking by 1pm. After a quick discussion, [...]

Mill Creek, VA

We motored out the York River and into the bay in a mild chop at first, but the chop calmed down to almost flat for most of the remaining trip. As we got near Deltaville, our planned stop, it was just barely 1pm, so we canceled at Dozier's and motored on to one of our favorite anchorages on the southern [...]

Foiled Again!

We left the Hampton Town Piers before 7am with the optimistic goal of reaching Deltaville, Va. When we got well out into the bay we discovered that the 2 to 3 foot waves (we expected to be somewhat uncomfortable, but) what we had were really 3 to 5 footers. After suffering for a while, when we got as [...]

Hampton Piers

We were up and out of our slip in Tidewater by 6:30am. Less than 2 hours later, after taking a beating motoring into 15 to 30 knot winds (yes, the weather man was wrong again!), we turned off the ICW and into the Hampton River. We are now docked at the Hampton Town Piers. Hopefully, we can continue on to Deltaville in the morning if the weather calms down as promised. The Captain

Tidewater aka ICW Mile Zero

We awakened this morning in Coinjock to find that all the boaters we talked to last night about staying put had up and left! After a little pow wow, we fueled up and got on our way. Before the day was over, we had finished the canal north, gone through the Great Bridge Bridge and the Great Bridge Lock [...]

Jekyll Island, GA

20 March 2017
We left Palm Cove Marina by 7:15 and motored through the more open lands of north eastern Florida and the very rural lands of south eastern Georgia. We passed by the city of Fernandina Florida and along the western shore of Cumberland Island Georgia and most of the way past Jekyll Island, Ga. We are docked in Jekyll Harbor Marina. We will be heading up along the ICW into the wilds of Georgia, hopefully anchoring in New Tea Kettle Creek in the middle of Nowhere, Georgia. The next two stops will be in Kilkenney Marina and then Isle of Hope Marina near Savannah. The Captain

Once we arrived in Jekyll Harbor, we found out there is a courtesy golf cart! This just made my day. We drove the golf cart to the market and the beach and the Jekyll Harbor Club and even to order pizza! Second to looking at the water, I love golf carts, even if you do drive them on the regular road and there are big trucks right behind you! The speed limit is the speed limit no matter what you are driving. It’s the best. The Admiral
