Whew. Almost 12 hours under way, and a new record for miles-in-a-day! This is what I get for leaving the boat to gallavant across the Atlantic Ocean while Jeff sat in port. 😉 Well, he didn’t just “sit there.” He worked. And he could’ve found someone else to head north with him. He chose to wait — which meant that when we finally got moving again, he didn’t want to stop! We are anchored tonight at the north end of Chesapeake Bay, having cruised past many destination spots. He’s eager to get back to Michigan and I don’t blame him. (His only grandchild is growing fast!) After several uncomfortably choppy hours while my body readjusted to movement — peppermint oil under the nose helped — the seas calmed so we just kept going. Weather windows! We have some challenging segments ahead of us, including the Atlantic Ocean, so we need to pay attention to those. Tomorrow, into the Chesapeake and Delaware (C&D) Canal and then the tidal Delaware Bay. Photos and captions of “Mary returns to Many Moons (redux), below.

I’m glad you are back on board and writing of your and Jeff’s voyage.

Wow, Mary! Amazing…
And tiring. I slept 14 hours the next day. (We did only 50ish miles the next day and took refuge in a river just off the big and rough Delaware Bay.)
