Current Location: Spring Cove Marina (Solomons, MD)
Miles Traveled: 0
Weather: Cloudy and rainy most of the week, (heavy at times), some sunshine during the weekend.
Highlights: Clouds and rain have dominated the weather for the past week or so, keeping us close to the boat and tied to the dock. Mostly we've spent the days reading, catching up on emails and TV shows, doing chores, and tackling some minor boat projects. Our inflatable SUPs (stand-up paddleboards) arrived mid-week, and we took advantage of a break in the weather on both Saturday and Sunday to try them out near the marina. First time out we were both pretty shaky, and Amy got wet a couple of times, but we quickly got the hang of it, and on Sunday, we were comfortable enough to venture up the creek and check out the area. They'll be stored in special brackets off the side of the boat most of the time, but are easy to deflate and store when we're travelling. Our other primary focus has been trying to line up a boat yard to get work done on our boat, including replacing the cracked front window. Washburns (here in Solomons) has agreed to do most of the work, and we're on their schedule for late August, but they have declined to take on the window, so now we're stuck with the choice of finding another boat yard here in the Chesapeake area, or getting it done in Fort Lauderdale this fall on our way back south to the Virgin Islands. Decision coming soon!
