Day 14: Back to the Bay
Fog, an evil current, and a foul wind make the Delaware passage less
than favorable. We finally reach the C &D Canal at 2130. Where the h*ll
is it? We finally find the "street lights" of the canal and we relax. But
what about the Conrail lift bridge? Nobody will tell us if it is down or
up. Ah, at 2245 we find that it is up. At 2345 we anchor at Chesapeake City.
Drinks for everyone!
Back to Jule III Home.
- Mr. Fog Horn: A COLREGS approved
fog horn but do we have to do this every two minutes?
- A Tug on the Delaware Bay: A friendly
USCG tug passes to port and waves as they pass. One of the few highlights
of the Delaware.
- Chesapeake City: Leaving the City after
brunch, WC, and shopping. Since our son broke himself (shattered ankle),
we were anxious to get home.
