Tucked in the little Hampton Bay where things were calm we decided to head out around 8 am. By 9 we were on the bay, and it wasn't the best ride. Very lumpy. And confused, which meant that there was no way to make the ride smooth; no matter where we turned the water was on our bow, and we don't ride that well. When it was best it was 1-2 foot chop, and at it's worst 2 with occasional 3.

Looking ahead we thought we might be at that anchorage for a few days. The wind predictions, which didn't seem too bad a few days ago, now looked less than fun. Once anchored we had lunch and took naps. We both got another Covid booster a couple of days ago, which knocked me out yesterday, including the nights sleep to today. I needed the sleep.
After naps Russ checked a number of weather apps. They said "go now!" Russ even pinged a looper out on the bay to ask how the conditions were (we do love Nebo!). They replied, "Flat and calm." So, around 4 pm, we hoisted the anchor and set out to get another 3 hours in, heading to Sandy Point. On the Wicomico! Heck, that's fun to say.
|Nice sunset at the end of the long day.|
