RE: arrived home


      After you left, the fog came in so we decided to stay another night at Annapolis.  The next morning was rainy but no fog so we left.  We motored up the Chesapeake and, when we got a little wind, I put up the jib.  It soon ripped at the attachment to the halyard.  Luckily, I was able to furl it, as it had started to slip down.  Now it is stuck and won't come down or up or out.  It unfurls a little then won't budge.  Time to climb the mast.  Anyway, we got as far as Summit North Marine...1/2 way through the C&D Canal...for the night.  Off again early the next morning to catch the tides.  While going down the Delaware River, I got several weather reports which suggested that we go directly home rather than do an overnight the following night.  We rounded Cape May with two other boats.  They went into Cape May and we kept going.  Scattered showers and cold accompanied us but no thunderstorms and no high wind (we had a reefed main up for the night just in case).    We got to Keyport about 3 the next afternoon (20 hours from Cape May) to find that the launch service hadn't started yet.  Brought the boat to the dock and offloaded into Florrie's car.  Took a rowboat behind us to the mooring, found that the chain painter was not installed yet so we made up a bridal, and rowed back to the dock.  Came home and spent an awful long time in a hot shower.  I guess there are certain advantages to a home on land.  
  Florrie left at 6 AM the next day for Maine and I slept most of the next day.  Now the sun is out...not in our Delaware forecasts at all.  I am putting off going back out to the boat for a few days. 
  Oh, I almost forgot.   The refrigeration has been working really well since we are in colder waters.
