Home again, home again, jiggety jog….

2265Back home at Stansbury Monday afternoon. We had a nice cruise from Chesapeake City after breakfast out with Allen & Mary. We arrived back at the marina about 2PM. After giving the pups an opportunity to get some exercise, we set about cleaning up Maerin. A thorough bath, got some laundry started, and took out […]

Back on the Bay

2262Our weather window opened Sunday, we headed out onto the Delaware Bay at 08:00. Had a very calm & relaxing trip up the Delaware with favorable current and light winds. Arrived Chesapeake City 15:20 and lucked out getting a spot on the free city dock. Enjoyed a visit from Suzanne & Bill on their way […]

Sunset Lake

We’re experiencing what cruisers refer to as being “weathered in”. Our trip up the Delaware Bay is on hold until the wind stops blowing 20 kts all day long. Maerin is perfectly capable of making that trip under current conditions with no more consequequense than needing a good bath on the other end. It’s her […]

Cape May, Delaware Bay & Back!

Headed out of Utch’s marina this morning at o’dark thirty, into the Cape May canal, & out into the Delaware Bay. We were greeted with 15-20kt. north winds against a flood (incoming) tide and a rough ride. 2217 After about 5 miles, we threw in the towel & headed back for the comfort of Cape […]

Atlantic City

Left 08:00 from Metedeconk River & out Manasquan Inlet for Absecon Inlet (Atlantic City). 2211This was our longest cruise to date, we were butting a head wind of about 15-20 kts. the whole trip. Winds were forecast to be west, but were more south-southwest, so we took them on the nose most of the day, […]

Manesquan Inlet – Bay Head, NJ

Left Belmar Thurs. about noon after sending Andrea off in her rental car. She’s now back in York visiting grandparents and friends. We headed south, and chose Manasquan to duck in for the night. We’re anchored in Metedeconk River, close to Point Pleasant and Bay Head. We dropped the hook for the first time in […]

South to Jersey Coast.

Left this morning from Haverstraw 07:30 after getting Karen off to work, and headed for Belmar, NJ. We had favorable tides the whole trip, much of the time we were making just under 9 kts, several times we hit 10 kts!  New York harbor was busy, but less intimidating the 2nd time around. Lots of […]

Kingston revisited

We’re back in Kingston to ride out Hanna. At the moment this is being posted, we’re about at the trailing edge of the storm, and the rain that began about 2 this afternoon is beginning to taper off.  We arrived here on Friday at about 15:30, it was a busy place, lots of cruisers and […]

Ilion, Canajoharie & Scotia – Eastbound

Eastbound back through the Canal System with stops at Ilion, Canajoharie, and Scotia. Ilion is the home of Remington Arms. There is a museum at the factory, unfortunately the museum was closed for the Labor Day 2050Holiday. The marina at Ilion is run by the village of Ilion, it is one of the nicest facilities […]


Sylvan Beach and Oneida Lake marks the end of our westerly travels. Time to turn around and re-trace our route. We’d really love to keep going to new destinations, but that will be for another trip. Sylvan Beach was interesting, a real throw-back to the 50’s and the beach resort town. Lots of interesting boat […]
