No Flo!

We were spared any real impacts from Hurricane Florence.  We took advantage of having all the canvas down to wax around the dodger area and run all the new lines we picked up over the summer, not it wasn't a waste!

Going with the Flo

Here in the Chesapeake Bay we are also tracking the forecasts for Florence.  Even our own kid has asked, "What are we going to do?"  Well, there is a full range of options from hauling the boat out and running inland to leaving everything as-is and dealing with a rainy, windy couple of days.  This weekend has been a 20+ knot rainy mess!  At a minimum we will likely take down our dodger and bimini.  Why?  They are brand new and VERY expensive!  For now, that's all I'm going to say.  We will watch the next few model runs and have a better idea of our plans by Tuesday.

Birthday Escape

We're not super big on celebrating b-days, but we had a bunch of family fun today!  We started it off with an Escape Room, then enjoyed a sushi lunch and ice cream in town before heading back to the boat for hours of swimming and relaxing.

Boat watching, dinner aboard (great guac by the girl!), and a sunset dinghy cruise rounded out the day.  That's my kind of b-day!

Rough start to a long weekend

Two days ago I had a little bit of excitement during PT at work--it would seem that I tore my right calf muscle!  Grrrr...not the best start to the holiday weekend.  But it was the muscle and not the tendon and the doc told me that if I took care I would heal quickly.

Wind and saltwater heal everything, right?  It was worth a shot!  Today we got underway and headed for another great long weekend in Annapolis.  We managed to snag a ball in the main mooring field and got right to swimming and boat-watching.  

We also managed a dinghy ride to Pusser's for Painkillers (for the leg!).  Now it's a great start to a great weekend!

Wye not?

We hit up another Bay favorite this weekend--the Wye River.  We headed up past Shaw Bay and dropped the hook in Lloyd's Creek.  This was what I needed after a long week at work.  We swam, paddle boarded, watched birds, took dinghy rides, and relaxed.  The weather was so perfect that K and I slept on deck under a full moon and a great view of Mars.  It was just a perfect weekend.
