It was a cold night on the mooring ball in Annapolis last night. It was great to use our new inverter last night to watch TV and for Lisa to dry her hair in the morning. We left at 8:20 am and motored to Thomas Point Light. The bay was showing some white caps with 2-3 foot seas and a small craft warning was in effect. After passing Thomas Point Light we put up the sails but with the winds at 28 kts we reefed the head sail so not to be over powered. We cruised along at 7-9.5 kts, it was great to be finally sailing on this trip. Along the way we saw two US submarines, very cool to see, they move very fast.
We arrived at Solomon’s Island at 3:45 pm. We decided with a frost advisory tonight we would take a slip at Spring Cove Marina so we would have heat. I took the opportunity to wash the boat, empty the waste tanks and fill the water tanks. We walked to a West Marine and got some gloves and warm slippers.
