July 4th Cruise - Day 2

01 July 2006 | Chesapeake City to Cape May
Philip and Ed woke up and were ready to raise anchor at 1:30 am. Ed helmed from Chesapeake City to Reedy Point while Philip napped. He was a very diligent helmsman and kept us right on target. At 3:30 am Philip caught the ebbing tide and helmed until daybreak. I had taken such care to pack them each a special goodie bag for the long night with chocolate, granola bar, fruit, nuts and delicious toffee and provided a Coke each. Only to find when I got up that neither of them had so much as been touched. Even the Cokes were unopened, which is a most rare occurrence for Phil.
We got our first, ?Thar?? she blows´┐Ż from Ed in the Delaware Bay as he spotted dolphins swimming in the distance and being the curious creatures they are they spent some time surfacing pretty close off the bow of Jabulani to see what we were all about. We hoisted sail about 15 miles out in the Delaware Bay and sailed all the way into Cape May Canal. We had to motor through the canal and finally anchored next to the US Coast Guard station and right alongside a very salty-looking double-ender with a single-hand sailor aboard. He brought out a colorful kite that looked similar to a windsock. So we brought out our rainbow colored kite. Then he went below and brought out a box kite, so we dug out our dinosaur kite and so on all afternoon. All this time we were shouting out communications over the hubbub of the anchorage and thoroughly enjoying his company. Of course, the poor Coast Guards cadets spent the afternoon dressed in their dark blue/black uniforms marching information around the base fields in close to 100 degree Fahrenheit weather as part of their grueling training. We all turned in for an early night.
