After a quiet night in Still Pond Creek, we left for Annapolis, Maryland under grey skies. Running with the outgoing tide, we averaged 6.5kts and did the 30miles run in a little over 5 hours.
Here the kids are sitting next to part of a statue at the memorial. What you can't see is a bronze statues of Alex Haley reading from a book to the kids (you can just see his foot, bottom left of pic).
Apart from sailing, Annapolis is home to the US Naval Academy. This means lots of young sailors! Lisa REALLY enjoyed Annapolis.
The only downside to Annapolis is that Delaney and Mitchell have both developed a catamaran- specific strain of "two-foot-itis". Mitchell really liked the 42' Fountaine-Pagot with the SCUBA locker on the transom , Delaney liked the Jaguar 35 with the huge cockpit. I'm still partial to the Lagoon 44 (Lisa seemed to like it as well).
Yesterday we did a short trip to Harness Creek on the Southern River. We shared the well-protected anchorage with another Gemini (Lilly Pad). We just woke up after a great nights sleep.
I'll add some pics on the next entry, right now our Internet connection keeps dropping out, I'm losing my mind.
