October 19, 2013  Day 150   
Spring Cove Marina
Solomons, MD

We left our quiet and calm anchorage on the Rhode River at 8:15 and worked out way through the crab pots back into the Chesapeake Bay.  It was cloudy and we were met with a chop of 2+ seas much of the way. 

When we passed the Calvert Cliffs we picked up four foot waves that were very close together off the bow.  We watched other boats near us pitching up and down into the waves and we are sure they saw the same of us. 

We finally turned into the entrance of Solomons at 1:45 and appreciated the quiet water of Back Creek.  There are many marinas here and ours is one that is set far back in the creek.

Our friends Ross and Laura were here to meet us and along with the dock master, caught our lines.  We traveled with them on part of the Great Loop and had not seen them since May.  We visited with them on our sundeck for a while and reminisced on our travels.

We all went to out for dinner and enjoyed our meal at the Ruddy Duck. We will see them again tomorrow.

We watched college football until 11:00 and called it a night. Our travels the past week are catching up with us!
