September 10, 2015  Day 82 New York Summer 2015
Spring Cove Marina
Solomons, Maryland

We made the decision to leave our mooring at Annapolis at 0705.   We were watching the weather reports and since the storms were mostly forecast for the afternoon, we decided to go. It was the right decision as we only encountered rain for four minutes while we were underway.

We had a good 52 mile cruise to Solomons and arrived at 12:45.  We got tied up at the dock and then welcomed Bill’s brother Bob, Debbie, and dog Jazzy to the boat.  After the rain came and went, we spent some time this afternoon getting Bob’s boat rafted to ours in preparation for towing them tomorrow.

We all walked to a nearby restaurant for dinner and enjoyed the meal and catching up with each other. 

We will get an early departure tomorrow as we will tow Bob’s 28 foot boat.  We have taken our dinghy down and will tow it also.  It will be quite the parade!  We will go as far as Deltaville and then complete the trip to Poquoson on Saturday.
