I'm currently at a mall in Norfolk, Virginia with limited time, using the wireless from the Mac store which spills out onto a couple of benches outside. I'll give a quick synopsis and post photos.
We arrived in Annapolis to find the boat safe in Spa Creek, we spent the afternoon loading and organizing, food shopping and laying out the next day. We had work to do to the boat, primarily insulating the engine compartment, so as to have the cabin quieter for boatschooling while running down the intercoastal. The twilight photo is of spa creek in Annapolis, a real ideal anchorage in many ways. We moved the following day to the wall in the center of town which is next door to a chandlery (Fawcett's) and ideal for being in town and having access to parts, etc. It was also perfect for trick or treating that night, as we would have easy access to the town. (Very important to our small ones). I spent the day working in the engine compartment while Laurel, Dakota and Alistair went to the local library and had school, the kids made friends on the sea wall as many people walked by and stopped to chat. Halloween was great, we found a very friendly street and the kids were treated very well indeed by the locals. (See pictures) Gotta run, the security guard just asked me to unplug from the wall. Will post again soon.
