2016 Month-long Sailing Trip - Part 9
Tuesday, July 12
|S/V Rainy Days is anchored is Whitehall Bay.|
|We saw about four great blue herons during our dinghy excursion up |
this beautiful creek--they nest in the trees lining the creek.
|This large brick home overlooks Whitehall Bay and is |
located at the mouth of Meredith Creek.
|We motored through a sailboat race coming into Annapolis |
Harbor--this was a Tuesday morning!
|I couldn't believe all the sailboats sailing on a Tuesday morning around |
Annapolis. These are some Opti's that are sailed in sailing camps.
|We got eight more decals for on our outboard motor|
and we still have room for more.

We spent today rather leisurely, having a light breakfast at City Dock Cafe, doing some shopping for deals at the Sperry store, and had a terrific lunch at Carroll's Creek Cafe in Eastport. We came back to the boat and read in the afternoon as some thunderstorms rolled through the harbor.
|Maggie had grilled salmon over mixed greens with tomatoes and|
raspberry vinaigrette dressing for lunch at
Carroll's Creek Cafe in Eastport.
|Maggie reads a book on her Kindle as thunderstorms |
roll through the harbor in the afternoon.
|Late in the afternoon, the rain pelted the surface of the Annapolis harbor |
as we continued to read in our nice dry cockpit. Even though there
was occasional thunder in the distance, the
rain was steady and refreshing.

Today's heat and humidity (96 degrees F but feels like 118 degrees F) was too much to do much of anything. We went into City Dock Cafe for breakfast and had showers early in the morning. We took the dinghy to the Fifth Street dinghy landing and walked to Palate Pleasers in the Eastport Shopping Center to get some things for a light dinner with friends tonite. We lounged on the boat and read most of the afternoon.
We are headed back to Hartge's Yacht Harbor in Galesville and take a slip for a couple days. We'll use the time to work on some boat projects before taking our boat around the peninsula to Hartge's Yacht Yard for the week. This is officially the end of our month-long sailing trip, although we will do some more cruising after the repairs on our boat are completed next week.
