June 21, 2015  Day 1 New York Summer 2015
At anchor
Dividing Creek, Chesapeake Bay   

We are finally back on the water! Our planned four week stay in Poquoson, VA turned out to be six weeks. We had an incredibly busy, fun, and productive stay. 

We completed all Doctor appointments, had many visits with family and friends, did shopping, and took care of several boat projects.  We decided to pull the boat and clean, sand, and paint the bottom.  Bill and his brother Bob did all the work, and we are so grateful for his help. It was well worth the extended time to get this done, and the boat looks great. We also stayed at Bob’s house during that time which was perfect -great company, and very convenient!!

Bill is happy to be underway as we leave Poquoson.
Happy Father's Day!

Sunset at Dividing Creek

So today, we left Whitehouse Cove Marina and cruised over six hours to a quiet anchorage on Dividing Creek.  The first two hours of the cruise were uncomfortable with three foot seas, but once we passed the open Mobjack Bay, it was much calmer.

We cooked dinner on the grill and enjoyed phone calls from our son and daughter for Father’s Day!  We hope to anchor at Solomon’s tomorrow.

We are still on a summer journey to New York, but not a specific schedule.  We don’t even know where we will spend the Fourth of July!
