Great Bridge,Virginia

We are now in Great Bridge, VA at the beginning of the Intracoastal Waterway.

After NYC we headed to Atlantic Highlands, NJ and met up with our friends Christine and Rob. The weather looked good the next day so we left early and headed south along the coast of NJ. We had a great sail beam reaching at 7 knots  for 10 hours straight then motorsailed through the night to round Cape May. We continued on through the day and ended in the Sassafras river after 37 hours under way. We did two hour watches through the night and it passed quickly.

We visited Baltimore and anchored right in the inner harbor one night and tied to a free wall the next so we could buy our charts for the Carribean at Maryland Nautical. We then headed to Annapolis where Staci's Uncle Jerry and Aunt Karen met us and took Staci and the kids to their house for a couple of days. I needed to stay on the boat because the Harbormaster would not let us leave the boat unattended overnight. That was an unexpected bummer.

Since then we just travelled south through the Chesapeake to get down here to trick or treat in what looks to be a good neighborhood.
