Sailventure Day Three on Elysium

Captain's Log:

Solomons Island to Machodoc Creek.  The 50 knot storm in Solomons buried the anchor, so it took some encouragement to get it released.  Motored south with 8 knot sw winds on the bow (nothing new.). Sunny skies. At. Point Lookout, winds turned west to our favor and were able raise the sails.  Had a beautiful 15 mile run up the Potomac.  Covered 48 miles for the day in total.  Quite and serene anchorage at Machodoc Creek.  BBQ shrimp and marinated flank steak - A very good day.

Ship Photographer's Log:

Well, the winds finally gave me a chance to sit comfortably in the cockpit with my camera.  While in Solomons, we anchored right off a navy warfare base.  Had fun capturing planes practicing a "touch landing" with immediate take off.  Excited to see some C Bay pelicans enjoying a sunny morning in the marker penthouse.  My favorite moment was when we came upon Point No Point Lighthouse equipped with outhouse.  The architecture to me was French in appearance so very formal to my eye.  We finally anchored in a beautiful creek in perfect timing to enjoy a gorgeous sunset!  Enjoy what I saw during the day!  Off to Smith Island on Wednesday - hoping to take some pictures of the watermen!
