Let's go sailing!!
06 August 2012 | Urbanna, VA --- Rappahanock River
Another great week. We're settling in to a routine here.
Lovely sunrises (when we're up early enough to catch them). There's also been a big, beautiful full moon shining down on us.
We had dinner with some folks on the dock that are from Little Washington-- small world, isn't it? After way too much wine, we crashed early Friday night, planning an early morning sail Saturday.
We didn't leave the dock as early as planned Saturday . Slightly delayed scraping barnacles from the bottom of Becky's kayak she left in the water. Who would have thought those little suckers would attach themselves so quickly-- it was only in the water about 10 days.
We had a lovely trip-- motored down to Tides Lodge to fuel the old gal, in anticipation of an upcoming trip this weekend.
We had a great sail out to Stingray Point -- just in the Chesapeake Bay. The weather was gorgeous-- winds about 12-15 knots and temps in the high 80's.
Of course, we snagged a crab pot and that slowed us down significantly. We didn't even realize we were dragging it, until we started the engines because we had slowed to 3 knots. Robert swears he's gonna start charging the crabbers for GPS coordinates for relocating their pots.
Back to the marina in time for dinner and a movie--- free Redbox rental. The movie wasn't great, but hey, it was free, right?
Sunday brought more projects-- Robert is making the pattern or our hammock couch--- we ran out of grommets, though, and had to abandon that project for one more day.
Yoga for Becky today , then grocery shopping/library/market. Robert is back to work--- Maggie is just relaxing---- eating and sleeping the day away.
We are excited about this weekend. We are having guests aboard and planning a sail to Tangier Island. Another new place to explore.
Gotta go-- it's cocktail hour and someone has to mix the drinks!!!!
