A Quick Update from Dede

Hi Everyone. Back on board Lady Lady (for those of you who have NO idea re: her name, don't worry - I have changed it to "Noah's Ark!!"). Brother Phil and I brought the boat across the Chesapeake...w/rain (of course, what other kind of weather do I get when on board!!), and 3-5 foot seas over the bow. As Capt Jim slept below, Phil and I "navigated" our way thur the shipping channel and lost power...Capt Jim arose and helped put up the sails (our other source of power!!!!). We continued thru Kent Narrows, under a 63 ft bridge...only to find a bascule bridge immediately after!! So much for those expenisve cruising guides that tell you everything!! Anyway...guess what...the sun came out!! I had a little difficulty identifying it, but after awhile, I remembered what it was! St Michaels is beautiful...of course, that is when you can get to town because the docks were under water. All well now...looking forward to our departure tomorrow to ???? Stay tuned!!
