2016 Month-long Sailing Trip - Part 4
Wednesday, June 29
|I awoke at 6 AM and took this photograph of the sunrise over the northern |
part of Tangier Island. Since we had six sea scouts from a nearby
boat available to help us remove our dock lines
and spring lines, we departed by 7 AM.
|After successfully navigating the eastern channel out of Tangier Island, |
I was pretty happy to be in the open water of Pocomoke
Sound, even if it was motoring.
|Three or four boats, including s/v Rainy Days, are tied up at the Onancock Wharf.|
|This was the end of our first day in Onancock, Virginia. We |
decided to stay a little longer than we originally planned.

|This is the artsy interior of s/v Veruna that inspired us to be |
more colorful with the interior of our boat.
|This is one of many large homes that line King Street in Onancock, Virginia.|
|Getting rid of some cooking sauces that we didn't think we would use in |
the future was nearly as difficult for me as getting
rid of old rope. These are the keepers.
|We number the coffee filters used with solids deposits in our composting toilet. |
When we get to number 70, it is time to empty the solids container.
|Coffee filters are placed over the solids trap door prior to make a deposit--it keeps |
the toilet bowl from getting soiled. Remember that there is no water
used in a composting toilet like there is with a typical
marine toilet or a toilet at home.
