day eleven - perfect

Cast off from the dock at Knapp Narrows 7:00 on a beautiful morning.  Motor out of the marina a turn west on the Narrows.  Full sail outside the channel markers 7:15.  Light but steady north wind, 2.8.

Just off Poplar Island 7:55, quiet there as all the barges and cranes from rebuilding the island are gone now.  

9:55 get a surprise air show as the Blue Angels circle above as they wait to do a flyover at the Naval Academy graduation across the Bay.

11:30 on Eastern Bay.  12:30 no wind, under power to the boat ramp at Claiborne.  Need to empty the head and get rid of some trash.

Tie up at the old ferry docks, clean up the boat and take a little walk.  Cast off 1:35.

The wind returns at 2:00, this time out of the northwest, making 4.2 to Tilghman Point.

Round the Point at 2:25, very choppy where Eastern Bay meets the Miles River.  2:45 sight the entrance markers for Tilghman Creek.  Anchor down in the creek 3:20.

A beautiful afternoon surrounded by trees, birds and calm water.  A man walks down to a nearby dock and asks about SPARTINA.  He tells me if I need anything just tie up at the dock and knock on his door.  I relax and read and enjoy the afternoon.
