We cut the dock lines on Saturday and had a nice motor sail down to Solomon’s Island.  The weather is not cooperating so we’re just hanging here until the strong south winds abate.  There’s no way we’re crossing the mouth of the Potomac river with gusts up to 25 knots on the nose!

Actually, the best reason for staying a few days is that we don’t have a schedule!!  We’re on a T-head at Zahniser’s marina with electricity (heat!!), wi-fi, showers and a nice place to walk around.  As we walked into town yesterday we saw so many dogs of different sizes and breeds.  Turns out the Tiki bar was having a dog fest. The crab cakes at Stoney’s are still good.  This is our last opportunity to eat crab cakes since our rule is to only eat crab cakes in Maryland (unless I make them.)

A beautiful day in Solomon’s Island

Right now it looks like we can leave on Wednesday unless the front moves through quicker.  Guess we’ll have to enjoy more R&R!

New pillows
I made new pillows for the boat!
