Went to the New Village Brewery https://www.newvillagebrewery.com/ tonight. There was a food truck that served an excellent gyro and tzatziki. A a string band called Brant Island Strings. Great night out.

Solomons to Deltaville...Well How Bout Fairport

Doing some catching up again.. Doing this on our motor to Bellhaven.

Shoved of early today to go to Deltaville. Had 45 or so miles to go. The wind was set for a beam to broad reach. Got out in the bay and had issues with the roller main. Eventually gave up on the main and threw out 75% of the headsail. Calling for 15 gusting to 25 and it did. Reefed the main a few times on our trek. The further we got the more chop developed. After 5 hours with the wind gusting to 25 we headed in toward Reedsville. Found a marina before Reedville, Fairport Marina And Restaurant. Not much of facilities for a marina but what do you want for a buck a foot.

One of Mary's goals was to master the dinghy. She started taking it out by herself in Annapolis. Independence for both of us. This is her coming back from getting her hair cut which I must say look so beautiful.

Annapolis to Solomon's

On our way to Solomon's Island. Doing a bit of catching up on the blog.

Picture was taken just before we left. Had a great stay at or around Annapolis. Hope to make it back next summer to spend some more time in the Chesapeake. A lot more exploring to do.

Had a great day yesterday. My brother Brett and sister in law came down from Mercersburg PA to visit. Great to see them. We dinked them out to the mooring field to hang on our boat. Had a few beers and just talked. Went to out to eat at Galway Bay Irish Pub https://www.galwaybaymd.com/. This was the second time we were there. The first was when Leon (high school friends) and his wife came down. Great food and not right in the tourist area. Love it when people come to visit for short periods of time...

Met up with Greg and Missy Thomasson. First met them when they broke down on their maiden voyage on their boat. The following year they were at the marina anchorage at Presque Isle. They helped us get a log off of our anchor rode. After that, they took off and travel to the Dominican Republic. We knew they were spending some time in Annapolis with his parents. They walked by the public docks when we were in there. After Harness Creek, we had dinner at Sailors Oyster Bar https://www.sailoroysterbar.com/. Buck a shuck. Awesome food. Must go back.

Woke up early and dropped off of the ball around 7 this morning. Very little wind on the nose. Yep. Motoring again.

7 hour voyage and we are at Zahniser's Yachting Center. Safe Harbor Marina. Great place. What the hell is wrong with Sandusky Harbor. This is is our third Safe Harbor other than Sandusky. Enjoyed our stay at all of them. Not that Sandusky is bad. The other Safe Harbor are a notch above.

Still here. Loving this anchorage. Moved in a bit deeper up the creek due to potential high winds. Never came but I was prepared with our new 66 lb anchor.
