The continuing adventures of a cruising sailor/family lawyer, his wife (also a lawyer), and their young children.
Water Taxi Going By In Relatively Windy and Choppy Conditions

He obviously isn't concerned about the wind kicking up. I had to re-anchor in the dark on my first night out. Very doable it turns out.

Walking to Annapolis

It was so beautiful, I didn't want to leave right away so I spent a day provisioning and walking into Annapolis. What a perfect place to start this sailing adventure.

First Night By Myself on the Chesapeake
Keith - late September, 2007
10/07/2007, Spa Creek, Annapolis

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.

Tropical Dreamer and Her Caretakers, Ken and Carol
Keith - late September, 2007
10/07/2007, Spa Creek, Annapolis

This is the 1995 Catalina 36 mkII tall rig and Ken and Carol, who took such good care of her from the time she was commissioned until late September, 2007. What great adventures await in this comfortable, rugged, and well equipped magic carpet.
