First Night By Myself on the Chesapeake

Keith - late September, 2007
I decided to sail the boat around instead of shipping it across the country. Saved me about $7,500 bucks. I'm so glad I made that choice even though I had no idea what was in store for me. As I write this I've been sailing and motor sailing down the Chesapeake for about a week and I can see why it is considered some of the best cruising grounds in the USA. I never would have thought to experience this area but it has been simply beautiful and relaxing. The weather has been perfect for getting to know the workings of this machine. The picture shows what the sunset looks like this time of year in the dozens and dozens and dozens of rivers and creeks that flow into the Chesapeake and which are deep enough to anchor in. This place is like the United States Sea of Cortez.
