Cauldrons on the Chesapeake!

Hellllllooo hive!  I have to apologize for my month-long hiatus post-wedding...things have been pretty busy around the ol' Cauldron household since the big day.  But, I'm back now, with some fun photos of our Chesapeake Bay honeymoon for y'all to enjoy while I anxiously await our professional wedding photos so I can start the wedding recaps.  (Really, what better way to celebrate our one-month wedding anniversary than by starting our honeymoon recaps?)  So without further delay, here's Day One of Cauldrons on the Chesapeake!

On the Sunday after our wedding, we flew home to New York to pick up our honeymoon bags, our truck, our dinghy, and our dog, and we drove down to Rock Hall, Maryland on Monday.  We had our 34' sailboat delivered to Rock Hall while we were down in Texas getting married, and it was happily awaiting us in a slip at the Sailing Emporium.

Osprey is happy to see us. 

After our arrival, we decided to explore Rock Hall on bikes:

Mrs. C 
Mr. C

The town was quiet, quaint, and pretty; I didn't manage to get any photos though (I was too busy riding my bike!)  We made a stop for lunch, and picked up some oil for Osprey's engine, along with a couple of other random things that hadn't made it to Maryland with us.  Then it was back to the marina for some final preparations for our trip.

Mr. C scrubs our dinghy.  One of the things that didn't make it to MD: our dinghy oars.  Oops.  Good thing the dinghy also has an outboard motor!  We did buy one wooden oar just in case...
One of the stops we made in Rock Hall was at a seafood market where we picked up some freshly caught rockfish (striped bass).  Mr. C whipped the fish up for dinner on Osprey's stove.  Man was it tasty!


We felt like we were as ready as we could get, and enjoyed a quiet evening on the boat before catching some z's in order to be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for our departure the next morning.

Next stop, Annapolis!
