Hello, Spring Break!

So far, so good out here on the Chesapeake! It's been cool and overcast, but really quite nice. We've made amazing time motoring with the wind and seas coming from behind and should cross into VA waters by 4:30pm. Rather than transit overnight we are looking to drop the hook by the Rappahanock River for a good nights sleep. Tomorrow will be a day full of bridges and locks, and with any luck we'll make it to Elizabeth City Monday. More to follow!

Moving day

We had a pretty lazy weekend cleaning, doing some shopping, and (for me) getting to know the new Sailrite sewing machine. Well, lazy wasn't good enough so we also remodeled Katreina's bedroom (she traded princesses for pirates!) and moved! Ok, it's not THAT big of a move, just 2 slips down, but it did require us to completely change around our docking set-up. We are now bow-in in a really tight slip, and I think it will take me a bit to get used to not having the "social end" of the boat facing the pier.
