We had an awesome three day St. Michaels cruise. Brian, Ginny and I on my boat, Dave single handed his, Daren on his, and Glenn and Lana on his Hunter 30. Here are some photos summarizing the trip.

Waking up to this view Sunday morning. My photo was Photo of the Day on Webshots Travel section.
Heading over to St. Michaels, reliving our first little adventure we had on January 29, 2006, only this time not having any problems. This was our first time back to St. Michaels since I relocated my Sapphire Breeze going on 3 years ago.
Brian and Ginny:
That's Dave weighing his anchor after we initially thought we would anchor in the small harbor near the museum. It was a bit too crowded, so we anchored just outside the channel entering the St. Michaels harbor.
Beautiful sailboat I'd love to have someday:

Some cool ultra-lights flying around:
We motored into town on Dave's dinghy, meeting up with Glenn and Lana in their rented slip. We then walked around and explored a bit.
