We set out this weekend to try to catch a rockfish and enjoy a sunny weekend on the bay. We headed north Saturday, picking up a Navy mooring in Weems Creek in the late afternoon as winds became gusty and variable. In the creek we clocked gusts up to 25kts. We even had a duck fly up onto our deck! A storm passed through just as the sun set, lighting up the sky, but we huddled together watching Pirates of the Caribbean.
Sunday was a stunner! Sunny, clear, and just enough wind for sail trolling. On the way out of the Severn, Frank even managed to fix a slow drip from one of the cooling lines. We didn't catch any fish, but had a great day of sailing.
We returned to clean the boat, get a start on the spring wax job, and enjoy a cookout on the beach. Really just a great weekend with the family.
