New York City

Our exit through the Cape May inlet was much more calm and pleasant than our entrance. We even spotted a few bottle nose dolphins on our way out.

Instead of day hopping up to NYC, we decided to go from Cape May to NYC in one jump.

C&D canal and Delaware Bay

We left Worton Creek and headed to Chesapeake City on the C&D Canal. The next day we passed through the C&D and made some progress on the Delaware Bay.

It was a cloudy, yucky day, but the wind was great and for the first time it was not coming from the direction we wanted to go!

And we're off!

What a first day. We were up early, excited and ready to go. I go to start the starboard engine ... and nothing happens.

Getting Ready To Go

It has been a crazy rush since we arrived in Annapolis last week. Showing up at a boat and getting it ready for a 1,300 mile trip takes A LOT of work.

Adding to the difficulty is the lack of a car, and the 21 month old toddler we have on board. There is no end to the trouble Hobie can get himself into. At the same time Hobie is sprinkling in a bit of the terrible twos just for good measure.

Packed and ready to go!

Tonight is our last night sleeping in a house! Ready or not, the dice has been rolled. We're leaving tomorrow morning. We're packed up and I feel ready!
