St. Michael's - San Domingo Creek

Leaving Cambridge had us down.  That is one of the burdens of this lifestyle.  We really like a place and the people, but we move on.  Sabrina was around to help untie our last dock line when we left this morning.  Once we got underway, I could feel the depression lifting.  We both encouraged each other that we are off to a new adventure and to meet new people.  Plus we had a romp up the Choptank with gusts around 25 knots.  We had to triple reef to keep Hold Fast under 7 knots.  The big winds lasted about an hour, and then let up - substantially.  Now we are at anchor south of St. Michael’s on our first steamy day in two weeks!  Oh well, that is how it goes.  We only expect a couple days of heat – but it is on these days that we really miss the air conditioner at the marina!  I am hearing thunder now, on a regular basis.  Maybe we will get cooled off by a thunderstorm.

On another subject – we discovered that our copper bottom is not effective and to our standards.  As a result, we may haul out at Deltaville to clean her up and apply bottom paint.  Even as fouled as she is, Hold Fast was really scooting along today!

Love to all,
