October 21, 2013  Day 152   Home From Down East Loop
Whitehouse Cove Marina
Poquoson, VA

A calm, sunny day on the Chesapeake was the perfect way to spend our last day coming home from the Down East Loop. We traveled 82 miles and thanks to a good current we made the trip in ten hours.  We were also greeted by three dolphins as they played near our boat this afternoon.

We also spotted the Pride of Baltimore under full sail.  We saw her on Long Island Sound a few weeks ago!  Following her was the Schooner Virginia!

We arrived at Whitehouse Cove Marina in Poquoson at 5:45 and were greeted by Bill’s brother David.  We are back!  This has been an incredible journey and we will treasure the memories and the experience.
Our journey ends here at Whitehouse Cove Marina,

We will spend the next three weeks regrouping, working on the boat, taking care of Dr. appointments, visiting friends and family, and planning our next journey in more detail.  We plan to leave in mid-November and head south for the winter.  Until then we will not publish a blog, but we will resume the blog when we get underway.

We end this with another favorite quote from Dr. Seuss…

“If you never did, you should. These things are fun and fun is good.”
