A Philly Cheesesteak at Long Island

Our sail down to Georgetown was wonderful.  The wind was out of the west at about 15 knots so the boat sailed beautifully with no engine sounds. Yea!
Once we got into Georgetown we were surrounded by boats.  There were easily 3 times as many boats compared to last year.  Of course we are here earlier than last year by about 2 months but, Wow!  So now we are overwhelmed by all the cruiser activities like bocce ball, exercise classes , volleyball tournaments, baseball games, ect.
We provisioned at the market and spent a day at the beach when a cold front moved down from the north.  This offered a rare chance of a change in wind direction so we could sail to Long Island. Both Nicholas and Paul where sighing with relief, seems neither one of them like being surrounded by a lot of people.
So yesterday was another great sailing day from Georgetown to Long Island with winds up to 20 knots out of the north.
There is a nice store to provision and a cool beach within walking distance from the dinghy dock at the restaurant.  We had a nice inexpensive dinner which included one of the best Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches I have ever tasted.  Yummy!
Next stop will be the Jumentos and Raggeds.  We are currently sailing there with another nice wind out of the ENE.
Here is a picture of a rainbow as we left the harbor.
