We were finally able to assemble the crew (Friend Jill from Pentagon Sailing Club and Cousin Dan McAndrews) of Magnolia for our shake-down cruise. The initial plan was to head over to St. Michaels, MD (eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay) for a late lunch and be back to our homeport of Galesville MD before night fall.
Unfortunately the wind did not cooperate as well as we hoped so we came up a bit short of St. Michaels. None the less we were able to find a pleasant little cove in the Eastern Bay which made for a great temporary anchorage to Barbeque some lunch.
Of course there needed to be a post cruise celebration. Unfortunately, Jill the responsible one needed to go and study for her doctorate exams or something. That simply left Dan, Annette and I to celebrate our conquest….which we did!
I am completely jealous! On this BEAUTIFUL NOT A CLOUD in the sky day with a slight breeze,. I just got into a car with family in route to NYC. Enjoy!
“Magnolia is Underway and Bound For Sea”, well for a ride on the bay atleast!!!
Have a happy and safe 4th, plus one wooooo-raahhhhh for our service members.
