Back on the water again
20 May 2019
Once you have been a cruiser and return to land, life is never quite the same. It is a wonderlust that gets into your bones, into your soul. It makes you restless when you are in one place for too long and the urge to set off for a new harbor is too strong to ignore. We've met many people that weren't sure that they would like leaving land behind and live on water for a year, maybe the spouce was reluctand to leave stuff behind, but a year on the Great Loop had them wondering if they really wanted to go back to a house, on dirt, in one place.
And so it is with us. The winter consisted of traveling through 7 states in our motorhome and visiting 8 new National Parks. Visits included friends and family. It was a lovely expedition but we could not wait to get back on the water.
After splashing and preparing the boat we left the darling town of Cape Charles and crossed the Chesapeake Bay in a zig zag pattern that allowed us to visit Deltaville, Tangier Island, St Mary's, Solomans Island, Cambridge and Oxford before dropping us in St Michaels in time for Community day celebrations. St Michaels along with Cape Charles will be added to our list of favorite small towns that include Beaufort SC and New Bern NC.
Dropping an anchor, watching the sun go down after strolling through quiet waterfront neighborhoods, toasting to a full moon... We are truly living a charmed life!
