This past weekend we made a last minute decision to take the boat up to Baltimore. I’ve been flying out of BWI airport, but we still hadn’t spent any time in Baltimore yet. It takes about 30 minutes by car. It took us part of the day Thursday and part of the day Friday by boat………….! Sailing is the ultimate in the saying, “Its about the process!”
Here are some pics of the weekend. It turned out to be fun and a good change of scenery. After being on the move for over a year its been a bit hard to be in one place this long. Even a weekend away is enough to make me feel like we’re not “stuck” where we’re anchored.
These container ships makes me feel really small out there!
We first anchored Thursday night in a little cove instead of traveling in the dark – there were also gale force winds predicted so we called it an early night. Here, Tobin is bringing up anchor in 35 degrees. Its getting cold here!
Here is the dodger (helm cover) that we spent time here in Annapolis making. It was quite the project – now our solar is on top and secure. No storm is taking it down!

Here we are, the only boat anchored in the inner harbor area of Baltimore. No wonder we were the only ones anchored out this weekend………..it was freezing! We were coming back from shore, out to the boat and a little girl started talking with us about where we were going. We said we were going home and told her we lived out on the boat. She seemed confused and then intrigued. A definite future sailor in the making! The aquarium is right here in the background. A really nice one!
Can you find us?
We went to my first ever professional football game – The Baltimore Ravens and the Arizona Cardinals were playing. Talk about a place to people watch!
