The Salt Pond- Brigantine

We arrived around 1621 hrs at the Salt Pond, a well-protected anchorage just inside the Absecon Inlet. The cruise down the upper Jersey coast was less than idea, with winds picking up into the 20+ kt range and seas kicking up into whitecaps and about a 4-5 ft chop on the nose. Not a comfortable ride.

The anchorage is a good stopover point, just inside the inlet, and has a nice beach at the narrow channel into the pond. We launched the dink and ran the pups into the shore for some much needed exercise. A late dinner followed, and a very calm night prevailed as the winds laid. Next stop, Cape May.
