Anchor up 6:45, single reef in the main and a very slow, pleasant drift out of the wind shadow of the trees.
Making 2.7 past the sand spit, the sound of a tractor rumbling on a farm, a flock of seagulls takes flight. Wing and wing down the creek.
Howell Point just at 7:20, the sun comes up. Shake out the reef and sailing at 5 kts.
Six deadrises work a shoal tonging for oysters. Blue skies and a crisp wind. Perfect.
Doing 3.3 approaching Cambridge. Round up to drop the sails. Docked at 8:30.
I walk a couple hundred yards to Yacht Maintenance Company, the yard where I left the jeep and trailer. Drive back to the ramp, break down SPARTINA'S rig, move the leftover food - not much leftover - and gear into the jeep. It's late morning and I drive around the little harbor to Snapper's Waterfront Cafe for an excellent crab cake - the crabs are picked right next door so they don't get any fresher than this. It's time to head home.
