|JUST THE "REMAINS"|
Our stormy trip sent us right into the choppy waves. It was doable until they started coming up over the top and dripping into the pilot house from the weepy ceiling. We were scrambling to get the charts and guide books out of harm’s way. Well, if that wasn’t enough, later in our day’s journey it got to pounding on the port side “V” berth window so viciously that it blew the latch. Buckets of water gushed in, saturating everything from my sewing machine, the carpet, both mattresses and bedding and then anything else that might have been in its path. Ugh!

|TRYING TO SOP UP SOME OF THE DRIPPING WATER|
The Cambridge City Marina, MD was a welcome sight, tucked back behind their defensive breakwater. Capable dock hands assisted us in tying up then we began to sop up, hang out, sweep and do laundry in both our machine and the marinas. It’s just a little water. By the time the laundry was about done the clouds were drifting to the margins and the sun was fighting its way into our day for the first time. Lovely
Wanda and David from The Bottom Line came here yesterday from Onancock and were already snugly tied up here. They gave us a call and asked if we would like to join them at the yacht club for dinner tonight. Didn’t have to spend too much time coming up with a positive answer to that question.
