|Another calm, flat day...until it wasn't!|
Another long travel day on The Lower Place! We threw off the lines at Calvert Marina, Solomon, MD Friday morning at 6:49AM!! Since Thursday was an 80 mile day I simply “assumed” Friday would be a little shorter. BUT…the water was calm, light wind, clear skies…why not keep cruising?
While I was at the helm (around 1:00) the wind shifted…water churned…clouds thickened..uh-oh!! The boat started rolling with the waves – Charlie appeared on the fly bridge asking, “What did you do?!” Of course, I have that kind of power!! LOL!!
Needless to say, the next couple hours were a little different than we expected. I took a nap – lying over an ice chest – trying to keep everything “on the inside”…UGH!!! Sorry no pictures!! Soon we turned off the Chesapeake and onto Elk River bringing much calmer water! Thank you Jesus!!!
A bottle of Gatorade and a stick of ginger gum and I was good as new!! Then we dropped anchor in Chesapeake City, MD anchorage at 7:30PM…103 miles later!! Not.Even.Kidding!! I am exhausted and not the happiest girl to hear we will depart at 6:20AM Saturday!!! HUH???
|Chesapeake Bay Bridge spans the width at 3.8 miles-WOW!|
Other than that – it was a cruise-filled Friday and the adventure of America’s Great Loop continues. Lord, help others only see Jesus in me…’cause the “me” part isn’t so shiny right now!!
|We were passed by Sanctuary (not Steve & Teresa) at the end of the day|
