A wonderful sunny day. Moved back down the Potomac to the St. Mary's River on a beam reach with 10 kt SW winds. Walked around St. Mary's College and visited the Dove. Dropped anchor in St. Inigoes Creek. Covered 18 miles in total. Cocktail dinghy cruise in the evening to explore the creek. Finished the evening with Anne's homemade meatballs and spaghetti.
Ship Photographer's Log:
A beautiful and lazy day for the photographer!! It is again very quiet on the C Bay today - so we decided to head up to St. Mary's College, situated right above the beautiful Horseshoe Bay, to visit the Dove. Make sure to check out the link for the history of this beautiful sailing vessel! Tying up along the college dock, we were able to walk over to this wonderful replica. If you are interested in sailing her - she does make several C Bay passages and they are always looking for crew!!! What a beautiful ship!! I also became fascinated with what appeared to be hundreds of Atlantic Sea Nettles, which are so common in the Chesapeake Bay this time of year! So fun to watch but not so fun to get stung by!! Enjoy the day!
