August 28, 2015  Day 69 New York Summer 2015
Delaware City Marina
Delaware City, DE

We got a very early start (0615) leaving Cape May for Delaware City, and it made a big difference. We were able to have the current with us the entire way. We did have 2 to 2 ½ foot waves for a while but nothing uncomfortable.  There were several tows with barges or tankers that we had to watch out for, but all in all, an uneventful ride.

After we got checked in at the marina at 1215, we picked up a rental car and ran several errands to provision the boat and pick up prescriptions.

In the meantime we had been on the phone with Donna and Amado, our friends from northern Virginia, trying to figure out a good time for them to spend the weekend with us.  Long story short, we all agreed that this weekend would work!

We got everything ready for their Saturday arrival. We were also able to make reservations to dock in Philadelphia on Saturday night.
