Small world. Was going to go down to the boat today, but needed to prep for a charter tomorrow. Hope you had a good time in Snow Hill. Lots of good paddling (kayak & canoe) on the Pocomoke tributaries. Will you be in Crisfield till Sunday?

We just finished (Sunday) an eleven week, 20 plus state, 11K plus mile road trip. Our butts are sore. We're back on Hobo (in FL) and liken it. Somebody says lets go for a ride? Maybe in a few weeks.

Same, here. My Longhorns play the Irish this Saturday. I might have to start drinking early to be able to watch. It's been hard to be a Horns football fan these last few years.

I am envious of your flexible schedule. I doubt that it will be empty, but I bet it will be more sedate.

We normally don't go out for weekends or short trips, just a couple weeks up to a couple months a few times per year. We avoid holiday weekends because there are so many boats out, especially people who only boat on holidays and don't know what they are doing or feel compelled to combine boating and alcohol consumption.


So, my wife is out of town and I may or may not take the puppy and spend a night or two on the boat at the marina.

We enjoyed Snow Hill, but have a deadline to be in Annapolis early Monday morning. With this weather potential we cut that stay short to get up the Bay before the North wind kicks in. The weather might not arrive, but we I can't take that chance on this one. We cruise full time so we can go back later in the season.

Smart move. Bay can get nasty when the waves build and are close together. Hoping to head back up the Pocomoke in September after the summer heat is gone.

No, well maybe but those were suppose to be some smiley faces that did not come thru except as questions. Some sort of autocorrect fail!

Planning to spend our very first night on the hook on this weekend! Got her almost two months ago, but it's been too hot here on the Chesapeake Bay. We are excited!,,,

Watch the weather Saturday night. Could be rather windy Prepare fr North east. From Ophelia VA, Smith Creek or St Mary's River could offer good protection.

Yep. Hermine forecast has just taken a turn to a more westerly direction and is going to run up the Eastern states after cutting across the panhandle and Georgia, rather than across northern Florida and out to sea.

I'll be tucking into Montezuma Slough for a little relaxation and maybe even a little fishing. Most of the boat traffic will be on the SF Bay to the west and well east of me in the CA Delta. Monte Sl is more of a fishing destination that has tremendous wind protection, beautiful scenery and nature and a soft but solid anchoring bottom. Most cruisers don't even know about Montezuma Slough and it's a bit early for the sturgeon fishing, so I'll likely have the place to myself.

The forecast: Bluebird skies, High mid-80's, Low high 50's, Wind 5-8 Kts.

WooHoo!!

I'm going to be bringing some rocks to Grand Haven, MI. I assume it will be a circus of fiberglass flotsam. I'm looking forward to it.

We are out to the San Juans starting on Monday for the week. Then we look for a nice weather window to head south to Portland where Pairadice will spend the winter.
Day 156 with almost another 30 to go, the Admiral is ready to get home.....Me, I'm ready to turn around and head North again. Guess I'll have to wait till next April for that.

Cheers all, have a great weekend!
