Cauldrons on the Chesapeake - Anchored in Eastport

Tuesday morning we awoke to a rather grey day, but perfect winds to get us across the bay toward Annapolis.  

Grey sky morning as we leave Rock Hall.
It was great to be back out on the water, regardless of the grey skies.

Enjoying the ride.
The sail to Annapolis was pretty uneventful, just us and the wind. 

I retrieved a wandering boat hook from the rail.

Overcast days are great for photos, right?  

Mr. C and I alternate steering and trimming sails, so you'll see lots of photos of either one of us at the wheel. 

Mr. C steers us toward the Bay Bridge. 

We decided we'd get under the bridge, then make a turn to go up Back Creek, which would put us near Eastport, just a short walk from downtown Annapolis. 

Approaching the Bay Bridge
Did you know the Bay Bridge is actually two bridges?  They are slightly different, but right next to each other. 

On the other side of the bridge(s)

We decided to drop the anchor in Back Creek, and then took care of some business getting the cabin tidied up and bringing Bosley the dog to shore.

Mr. C and Bosley returning from a quick trip to shore for important doggie business. 

We made friends with a Canadian couple on a nearby catamaran, and they took this photo of us with Osprey in the background, as we were on our way in to the dinghy dock to wander around Eastport. 

That's Osprey behind us.
We spent the evening in Eastport having drinks at the Eastport Yacht Club and dinner at The Boatyard - two great spots to hang out.  

Day Three and Four up next - fun times in Annapolis!
