Lot of space between my last blog and this. Went to a beautiful church this morning, St Mary's in Annapolis. A lovely service for a Catholic church. Mary said it felt like she was watching the Lion King. The priests was Father Elias from Grenada. Extremely uplifting and inspiring. A beautiful service.

Our next stop was to Acme Bar to watch the Steelers take the game from the Buffalo Bills. Mary is just so damn happy. It wasn't pretty but a win is a win.

Spent a great day with my lovely wife. Don't get much better than this.

Doing some catching up here. We are currently are in Annapolis. The date really isn't 8/29. Not sure why I haven't been keeping up withe the blog. I think it's been working and traveling. Not getting much of a break. We have been in transport mode since we started. Kind of wore me down. Anyway, I'm going to update the blog with each leg of our trip.

New York, the Big Apple. Who the he'll came up with that. Had to look it up. Here ya go: https://www.travelawaits.com/2657319/why-new-york-is-called-the-big-apple-and-other-city-nicknames/

Doing a little catch up today. We made the hop down the Hudson two days ago from Kingston to Ossining. About a 60 mile stretch. Eight hours along the Hudson. Beautiful ride down but the highlight was going by West Point. We were planning on heading down to the city but Henri came into the picture. We chose to delay the trip down out of caution. Why go into the storm with everything that you possess. The city will be waiting for us next weekend. Headed across the Hudson to Haverstraw. Got a discounted rate since we are staying a week. Going to work and finish getting the sails up before heading down to the city.

Lesson learned, the boat is not transportation.
