July 12 - 15, 2014  Days 76-79  North End of the Chesapeake Bay!
North East River Yacht Club
North East River, MD

We continue to enjoy our stay here in North East, MD, although it is hot and humid and we are faced with frequent storms.  We think the air conditioning issue is fixed. Bill removed the water pump and reinstalled it and it seems to be working. 

Bill finished his bird carving class and is pleased with the results.  He brought them back to the boat Sunday but had to return them to the instructor Tuesday. The birds will be entered in a carving competition of other students in October at the Ward Museum in Salisbury, MD.

We met more yacht club members Saturday night and enjoyed having Ann and John visit on our boat. 

We took a short road trip to Newark, Delaware and ran some errands there.  We are taking advantage of having a rental car.  We also had dinner at Woody’s, a local crab house and one of our favorites.  Crabcakes are not to be missed!

Relaxing in the shade
We will drive to Pennsylvania tomorrow and visit Bill’s aunt.
