Where we at

Sandy Point to Solomon, dock

All the weather apps said the same thing: the day will start out great then get windy after 2 pm. Since we had a 5 hour trip ahead we didn't tarry. We got up early, around 5 am and had the anchor up by 6.

Nifty sunrise happened as we were leaving. As predicted, it was the only time we'd see the sun for the rest of the day. Slowly clouds covered the skies, but the wind remained calm and on our stern. The ride all day long was just perfect -- zero issues crossing the Potomac.

We snugged up to the transient dock at the Solomon Island Yacht Club. It's the third time we've been here. The t-head they reserve for transients makes getting in and out trivial.

Weird things you see underway.
That is a tug boat pulling a barge
loaded with containers.
Keeping an eye on the weather we'll take it day by day, staying tonight for sure and possibly tomorrow.

One of the yacht club members recommended a place to eat called The Island Hideaway. Some of the best Buffalo Cauliflower we've had in a long time!

Longer vid of our getting up and out today.
But you get to see the sunrise.
Also it was bumpiest right at the beginning of the day.
The rest was perfect.
