Destination: Cambridge; Dun Cove Enroute

We left Deale about 1600 and made an easy crossing to Knapp’s Narrows by 1830, then proceeded north on Harris Creek to Dun Cove.

After experimenting with one anchor set with a new (used) Delta anchor I acquired cheaply, I switched back to my danforth, for a good set, and settled in.  Now 2030, we were ravenous, and Ruth made a quick dinner of burgers, sauted mushrooms, fresh tomatoes with basil, and broccoli – yum! Best burger and ‘shrooms I can remember.

We cleaned up dishes, showered and went to bed. Awakened by rain in the night, I closed the slider and narrowed the opening on the forehatch – back to sleep.  Still raining at 0730, I made coffee – drank coffee and relaxed ’til noon.

It took two trials to free the anchor – we use the forward momentum of the boat to break it out – so no worries about staying put last night.

We motored South on Harris Creek, then turned left at the marker signaling the western limits of the open Eastern Bay. Serene motoring for 3 hours put us outside the channel leading to downtown Cambridge and our free berth on the bulkhead.

Tonight we’ll get together for dinner with old friends from my former work life.
