The title has nothing to do with our sailing. It was an expression I overheard at the tiki bar here when someone was describing the disastrous day sail they had with a captain who didn’t know the boat and the customer had to intervene while nearly going under a 14 foot bridge in a 30Continue reading “Fine exhibition of noble seamanship.”

I’m a Mermaid.
It was a very calm and misty day motoring to Old Point Comfort, a very historic place for those of you who know your Civil War History (or the battle of the Northern Aggression as taught by some). Chuck and Dana were there to greet us and we had great fun catching up. Chuck toldContinue reading “I’m a Mermaid.”
JULY 22 St Micheal’s to Old Point Comfort.
With AC and a spiffy engine we started our return back South. 1st stop was Bay Bridge Marina where we had to have a splendid meal at Hemmingways (No I don’t think this was his regular). It is known for excellent food and wonderful sunsets. We had a close shave with a stump of aContinue reading “JULY 22 St Micheal’s to Old Point Comfort.”

Once again it was an adventure trying to get parking in Alexandria and then figuring out the nearest metro to the National Art gallery.

It could be worse. The Head could be broken
For the non sailors the sea is the toilet. But that is later. On Friday we headed to Washington. Well, we drove to Alexandria to take the metro into Washington DC. We set our GPS for Alexandria Station but arrived at Amtrack. I couldn’t understand the station masters explanation as to where the tube/subway/metro wasContinue reading “It could be worse.

Not Looking good !
Well we are in Herrington North and the mechanic is currently working on the engine. He was surprised we made it for 400 hours motoring without breaking something. ( I’m sure I heard him say under his breath. .. they must be wonderful sailors or something like that). He said the engine was badly malignedContinue reading “Not Looking good !”
