St. Michaels Cruise

13 October 2008
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.

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.

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.
