before the trip

On the way to Chincoteague we stopped at Sting-Rays (know as Chez Exxon to locals) near Cape Charles for the traditional breakfast sandwich.  There we ran into my friend Bill, who took this photograph and forwarded it to me.  Thanks, Bill.

In 24 hours we would be following the curves of Cat Creek at over four knots under jib along.  In 48 hours we would be driving home, realizing that the Metomkin Island overwash blocked our chance of sailing behind the barrier islands down the Eastern Shore seaside.

It is time for summer day sailing - Bruce and I had a nice day on the Elizabeth River this past Friday - and time to start thinking about the fall solo trip on the sounds of North Carolina.  

So it
