Underway yet again... moss gathers on this rolling stone, or rather, no barnacles or growth gathers on on this hull! After only a few days in her home port, Equinox is underway again, this time heading south on the Chesapeake Bay to the Hyatt RiverMarsh Marina and Resort in Cambridge, MD. Currently we are in Annapolis, at the Annapolis Harbor Boat Yard, where we're getting some quotes for a possible new flybridge top. The current bimini top we have is too flimsy and noisy, with the canvas sagging and all stretched out (it collects rain water like the Bermudians do with their roofs!) so some other solution is needed. Whether it will be a stretched canvas cover over an aluminum frame, or a fiberglass hard top has yet to be determined....we'll see! It's always good to see Kevin and John here at AHBY again though!

We'll continue our journey south tomorrow and make the remainder of the voyage to Cambridge, where we're meeting Ron's sister, Laura, her husband Jeff and their two children, Marina and Jordan for a long weekend of family fun in the sun. The resort is a great place to meet, since the Hyatt has all sorts of amenities from a golf course, tennis courts, restaurants and two huge pools, one with a waterslide. Karyn is totally focused on the fact that Cambridge is also home to J.M. Clayton's, a local crab-packing facility there, where we can buy hand-picked lump crab meat by the pound. Perfect for Ron's fabulous crab cakes!! Yum!! Can't wait! Steamed crabs are also on the menu for Saturday night...REALLY can't wait for that!
