Cruising on the Lady Maryland

Despite the threatening weather, morning events were still on and we had a great sail on the Lady Maryland with Captain Michael and crew. It was really a great morning to be on the water!

Now it's time to head home and prep for Frankenstorm!

Downrigging Weekend

Well, with "Frankenstorm" on its way we are sticking with our plans for the weekend! We got to Chestertown tonight just in time to walk out on the 231 bridge and watch a great fireworks show behind the tall ships. The kids and I splashed around in the pool and now they are resting up for our sail on the Lady Maryland tomorrow. Should be fun!

2013 Trek Across Maine: Jody Powers - American Lung Association

2013 Trek Across Maine: Jody Powers - American Lung Association

Well, I guess I'm in!  I haven't been on my "nice" bike since right after Katreina was born.  She's 6.  But that's ok, because I know a few folks who are working hard every day just to breathe.  I have quite a few friends who work in the hospitality industry (hostesses, waitresses, bartenders, etc.) who have to put up with second-hand smoke just to bring home a paycheck.  ALA is working to bring that to an end, and I'm ready to work with them!

Fall fun

We stayed "home" again this weekend and invited family and friends out for day sails on the bay. Saturday we had the cousins over for a day out on the water, a little grilling, and finally a bonfire on the beach. Today some friends joined us for their first sail! The whole weekend we were treated to great weather and I think everyone had fun. Next week? The tall ships at Chestertown!
