I know it’s been a long time since our last post, many things have happened. Here is a quick update:

November 2013 after Jacksonville we continued on the ICW to Stuart, Florida with stops in Titusville and Vero Beach. Once again we got a mooring at Sunset Bay Marina; this is like home to us. So many friends we have met there and the staff and facilities are incredibly nice. At some point in time we decided that this was the ideal place for us to buy a house, not to stop sailing, but it was time. So after many open houses and probably driving the realtor nuts we picked a small duplex/townhouse in a family oriented neighborhood. It is just 3 miles to Sunset Bay and an hour away from 2 daughters and family.

We moved into the new house in January and after getting settled in to our new neighborhood, our youngest daughter announced her wedding plans for July 5. So we left Florida and sailed/motored back to Maryland for the big event. We got a slip at Hartges in Galesville, what a great little town; however it is 8 miles to the nearest store. This was not a good choice since we were carless (except weekend Enterprise rentals).The wedding was perfect, an outdoor barn wedding the weather was a cool but sunny day. It all went off without any issues…a good time was had by all.

So Monday we left Hartges Marina early and sailed to the top of the bay where we got a slip at Chesapeake Inn and Marina in Chesapeake City, MD. I was not expecting such a great sailing day we had great wind most of the way. Tomorrow we will leave here around 6 AM to catch the current through the C&D canal, and a little bit of help in the Delaware River.  Hopefully we will make Cape May before sundown. After Cape May we go for about 40 hours sailing to Block Island, RI. Our final destination this trip is Maine.
