Where we at

Baltimore to Delaware City, marina

After nearly three weeks in Baltimore we headed out this morning. Do we think the weather is looking good for the next few days? NO WE DO NOT. But after watching the weather closely for a couple of weeks we've notice forecasts change almost with each update, and for some of our weather apps that's every 3 hours. We've concluded we need to be ready to pounce at a moment's notice.

Tomorrow morning is such a weather window. A Nor-easter is coming. But there's a decent window to get down the Delaware beforehand.

The trip here started a little lumpy, with 2 footers on the nose. The further we traveled up the Chesapeake the less of an issue they became. Once near the CND (Chesapeake And Delaware Canal) the boat density increase 100 fold. Most of our bouncing at that point was due to a ton of wakes.

Not the worst water we've seen.
We'd been to Delaware City Marina before when we looped, so it's been a few years. Off a quiet and small canal the marina is one long dock. It's one way in and one way out. As a result, before you settle in they like you to turn around so you're pointed forward on your way out. If you're a small enough vessel they do that for you. As for us, we do it on our own. Just a tad exciting.

Take me down to Delaware City

Early morning tomorrow. Fingers crossed that storm doesn't come in early.
