This morning we walked to the nearby Duncan Donuts for a quick bite and “cuppa joe” (no power on the Quest) before scooting through the now functioning 9th Street Bridge at the 9:00 AM opening. We followed these cute square tugs that were working on the much needed new bridge construction.
Everything was going smoothly until “BUMP, GRIND” “What was that?” It appears that we kind of hit bottom right in the middle of the marked ICW channel. I don’t think that is supposed to happen!! All you mariners take heed and avoid 39*N X 18’ and 074*W X 33”. Since Dan was going slow we were able to work ourselves out of the shallow and continue on. Good job Dan!
Interesting fact from Dozier’s Waterway Guide: Atlantic City’s commuter airport is believed to be the oldest municipally owned airport in the world and the word “airport” was coined here because you can easily pull up to drop off or pick up crew members.
Also, Sam won his first round match in Wimbledon!
