Fun day at the office

17 May 2018 | Ventor City anchorage
Rainy, foggy, windy; what can I say?
Had a pretty good night at our anchorage, although with no wind, the boat lay beam to the 1 foot swells, so rocked us to sleep. We got up at 0500 and were underway by dawn. Best time to cruise. Unfortunately, no wind, so there was fog with 1/2 mile visibility. That is what Radars are for! We had an ok trip for the first 30 miles to Cape May. This is the start of the New York playground. We tried heading out in the Atlantic, because we had heard that it was a "gong show" in the canal. Unfortunately it became rough quickly, so we had to bail out, into the canal. For the next 8 hours we crawled tortuously through the waters that were incorrectly charted, [had missing buoys, depths were totally fictitious} and homes built out over the water on both sides of the canal. It is definitely the most concentrated housing we have seen on the waterways.
One beach town follows the other, easily the most rampant overdevelopment we have see; with fair grounds ever 10 miles, or so. The beaches on the Atlantic side are renown for the soft clean sand, and every square foot is fought for after the Memorial day weekend. Great place, but kind of sad, to see how such a nice area can lose its charm, because it is so nice.
Both of us were exhausted after a tense day, so hit the sack at 10:00; as soon as this blog is posted!
