It was a glorious morning with warmer temperatures and a total lack of frost. Thank you very much! Wanting to cover quite a distance today we were once again off well before 8:00 AM. However, by 9:00 Dan was bemoaning the choppy bay waters and looking ahead for a place to take refuge. Since the previously damaged “V-berth” window was once again leaking profusely, I was all for the abbreviated day. Dozier Marina in Deltaville offered just what we were looking for and by noon we had docked, registered, washed the salty residue from Quest, gotten the soggy towels into the laundry, taken the front rug out to dry and posted yesterday’s blog. Whew!!
Deltaville, once the wooden boat building capital of the Chesapeake Bay, is a principal pleasure boat center on the South Bay. This sleepy village springs to life during the busy summer boating months. The Dozier Regatta Marina is owned by the same family that purchased the Waterway Guide in 2002. The Dozier Waterway Guides are near Bibles to most of us cruisers and we wouldn’t be caught without the appropriate book for each leg of our journey. It was, in fact, the Waterway Guide for the Chesapeake Bay that gave us the information needed to locate the marina and make contact with them. Thankfully this is a nice, shielded marina as we may stay a couple of days until we get a weather window to finish our journey in the unprotected Chesapeake Bay.

Dan was super happy to kickback and enjoy the NASCAR race in Phoenix, AZ. I think he even stayed awake (for the most part at least).
