We left Delaware City and headed down the C&D (Chesapeake & Delaware) canal. It is the shortcut from Delaware River to Maryland.
We are trying to travel shorter jumps so we only traveled from Delaware City to Chesapeake City on the C&D canal. It was nice so we decided to stay an extra day and get a few things done on Adventure. The second day we took the Genoa (big sail on the front of the boat) down and hauled it into the cabin and repaired it. After we arrived at Point Judith the sail was not useable and had pieces streaming from it.
Pulling and pushing it around to get the repairs in line with the sewing machine became a bit of a problem however we persisted and got it sewed back up. Glad we have the sewing machine. That would have been an expensive repair.
As you can see in the photo’s we had the sail pretty much crammed into the cabin with Tam and I twisting it around as needed to complete the repairs. But we did get them done and now have a working sail.
Now we have the finished product up and sailing
Which we used to get here to Magothy River.
We were happy to get back to a little wind power. We had traveled from Chesapeake City to Sassafras River then on Friday we traveled to the Magothy River just south of Baltimore, MD. While we were traveling we were trying to locate a marina to park Adventure while we spend time with Dale and Brandy in Washington DC and then go visit Beth at Radford in Virginia.
We think we located a reasonable one and we are going to try moving over there in a bit. The problem is we have to go in at high tide or the water may be right on the borderline for our 6′ draft.
We can stay for 2 weeks for less than the diesel we use in 2 weeks.
We are anxious to see Dale and Brandy then see Beth for a while. It should be a great two weeks.
We will have an address of
Atlantic Marina Resort
487 New York Ave
Pasadena, MD 21122
When we get back in 2 weeks we will be able to head down the ICW (Inter-coastal Waterway to Florida.
We will try to post the blog when we have time over the next couple of weeks. We will be off Living The Dream.
