Ed / Fantastic sailing.
June and early July have been fantastic. From Annapolis, I single handed to Rock Hall Maryland, a quaint town with a lot of energy. My favorite part was the public transportation, an open coach, pulled by a Rav4, 1 dollar, call for pick-up and travel anywhere in town. In Rock Hall we stayed at the Sailing Emporium, a wonderfully maintained marina that caters to the local sailors, a fully stocked ships store and all services.

In Rock Hall I did some needed boat maintenance, and then prepared for the Admiral's return. It is nice to have her back.

EJ and I visited Annapolis and Solomons Island by car before we departed for the northern Chesapeake. I had been to both by boat, and we decided to visit by car since there was unsettled weather, and we would have been going backwards. These are great towns, with great people and restaurants. Also Annapolis had great grocery stores. It is hard to believe that Rock Hall is only 20 miles from Annapolis by boat, but 65 miles by car.

From Rock Hall we headed North to the C&D Canal and down the Delaware Bay to Cape May, New Jersey. It is easy to see why the Chesapeake is called the sailing capital of the World. The Bays are beautiful, not as pristine as the North Channel, but very nice with hundreds of anchorages and marina's. There is an anchorage or marina every 5 miles, all are welcoming and very nice.

Cape May is a historically tourist town, with vacation homes dating into the early 1800's. We stayed at the Canyon Club resort and marina, another beautifully maintained place.

Then the dash North a stay in Atlantic City with a walk on the boardwalk, some great food, and a view of the Atlantic City beaches and the casino's. Last it was a 91 mile open water run to New York.

More about New York in the next post.

Safe travels to all,

Ed and EJ
