Return to Solomon's Island

13 October 2009 | Solomon's Island, MD

We sailed from Annapolis this morning, weighing anchor at about 7:30am and getting underway in earnest by 8am. The winds were not exactly as forecast, but they still allowed us to sail south. We sailed to weather anywhere from 45-70 deg off the wind all the way down to Solomon's Island. The Chesapeake Bay was festooned with sail boats departing from Annapolis as we were. The winds allowed for decent way however they never became the spritely zephyrs that were forecast for the afternoon. We made sufficient way to make Solomon's Island by 4:30pm.

As we approached the Island, we hailed the Yacht Center and spoke with Quinton whom hooked us up on C-dock where we tied up last time we were here. Once the Song was secured, Dave & I set about performing the required maintenance tasks. We changed the engine oil, the gear oil, and one fuel filter. The work was done in short order and soon we were immersed in the heady smell of homemade chili heating up on the stove. We served the chili with tortilla chips, homemade pico de gallo, and a generous dollup of Cholula sauce for good measure. We washed said chili down with a cold beer and all was right in the world.

Dave is cleaning dishes as I write. Soon I will check tomorrow's weather and call home. Tomorrow, we intend to sail to the Rappahannock River and visit a previous location we stayed in order to survey a boat for Dave Simeon. So far, we are on schedule and all is OK with crew and boat.
