Around the Cape

Well, once again we were up with the chickens, (or in this case sea gulls) and back out onto the ocean.

Another thing that is different about sailing on the ocean is entering and leaving port is much more, shall we say dramatic. There is usually a dredged channel that leads into the harbor mouth and, all around it, the surf is breaking against the shallows. I mean BREAKING! Stuff that would have reduced us to splinters if we had strayed from the channel.

It was the same way going out. Quite an attention getter is you ask me. We headed south and stopped in Cape May, New Jersey for fuel. Until we got there, I had forgotten that it was Sunday. Boats whizzing everywhere. Sneaked in and out in less than an hour and were on our way. The conditions were much more benign than the day before but still 6 - 8 foot swells.

We then rounded the Cape and entered Delaware Bay. Even though it was the same day and the same trip, Delaware Bay and the C & D Canal deserve their own entry, so I'll close this one with a pic of the Cape May lighthouse.
