Staying Back ??????

The South River anchorage

OK, we knew it would be "different" not going south this year, but this!!!! We have spent time with some of our cruising friends and are really really regretting our decision. Since we are having a series of "boat issues" popping up, we have to live with our decision. Now the radar and chartplotter have crapped the bed. I guess the only silver lining is the fact that we will have some new systems for next year in Fine Lion.

A nice spot to hang out

We did get a chance to spend Veteran's Day weekend on the water. It was fantastic. We went to South River and anchored out. That meant that we grilled a couple of great steaks with baked potatoes and steakhouse asparagus. Naturally, we had a great bottle of wine. Ah...we miss it! Somehow a dinner like that is better on the boat.

Enjoying the day

There were a couple other boats in the anchorage as well, but it's a huge area. It could hold 75+ boats easily. That may have been our last outing for a while based on the weather patterns. It's not fun being cold...and now we're both white as sheets...pasty, in fact. OK, enough complaining.

Kim likes her "princess seat"

The horse farm pictures are due to Kim. She passes that location on her way to work and wanted to share the view. The trees are Bradford Pear Trees. See, we're easily amused.

What an entrance!

Yes, there are horses at a horse farm

We'll keep doing some blogs even though we're dirt-dwellers this winter. Hopefully I can find something of interest.

Happy Thanksgiving. Scott and Amy are coming down from Annapolis...we are excited!

Steve lived in Annapolis, but has now moved to Oriental, NC. He's been sailing since 1975. He's a member of the Annapolis YC, SSCA, Royal Marsh Harbor YC, and a past Commodore of the Severn River YC. It's difficult to live in Annapolis, or Oriental, and not be involved in sailing. [...]
