Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July. Hope you all have big plans for the day. Today, we are in Deltaville, VA. I don't know much about the area, but I know we are just below theRappahannock River.

So the latest of our adventures . . . We stayed in Solomon's until Friday morning. Jack and I spent a couple of restful days just hanging out. We rented some bikes and took a tour of the town. We visited the Calvert Marine Museum which was really cool. The museum has the Drum Point Lighthouse on site and completely remodeled so that you can walk through the whole lighthouse. We also tried some of the local restaurants. Oh, and the pool with the underwater music at the marina was interesting.

(Oh, and one other thing we learned . . . when we return to Solomons with the fleet on the 7th, Styx will be appearing in concert at the museum. Might have to check that one out!)

Thursday night, Jack's son, Jeff, rejoined us on the boat. Friday was going to be a long day so we were glad to have the additional crew back. We got up at 5 AM on Friday and were underway by around 6:30. We had guessed on about 12 hrs of sailing down to Deltaville.

We had some nice wind on the way. We saw a bunch of sting rays in the water and we had one dolphin stick a fin up to wave hi and then he was gone.

We pulled into Deltaville around 5:00 PM. It was a LONG day. There were two other boats here from our club, so we all went out for dinner at a local eatery.

So that brings you up to date. We are in Deltaville for the day today. Tomorrow we leave for one of the local anchorages.

Hope you all are doing well and see you all soon!
