Ahhh . . The luxury of a working marine toilet! You don’t realize how great it is until it doesn’t work. We had a peaceful night in the marina and got underway about 0900 to make the last 35 miles home.
As we sailed out of the river and into the bay, we saw one of these tugs doing whatever tugs do when they don’t have a load. Here are a few images:
We continued on past the nuclear power plant, Calvert Cliffs, the commercial gas dock, up past Chesapeake Beach and North Beach, then into our home waters of Herring Bay. Pier-side by 1600.
9 days aboard, 180 miles, two or three small-scale disasters, but over all, a great time on the water and with friends. As good a time as we enjoyed, we still prefer a slower pace (fewer miles per day) and more time at anchor, more time exploring each stopping place. We are looking forward to more trips and slower over the rest of the summer.
