"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

-Mark Twain

Kent Island, MD

The trip to Kent Island took about 5 hours, and started out a bit rough.  The weather improved as the morning passed and it turned out to be a very pleasant day on the water.  Castle Harbor Marina is where we are staying,  Jim's cousin Dennis keeps his sailboat here.  The marina is quite large with a beautiful pool, good thing since the temps have risen to a sizzling 103 degrees. 

Dennis and Daniela came down on Wed. and gave us a ride to and from the airport.   We headed to Chicago for our nephew Connor's graduation party over the holiday weekend.  It was a nice break from the boat, and we enjoyed seeing family and friends. 

On Thursday afternoon they took us into Annapolis for dinner.  We enjoyed watching the boats on the water, and had a wonderful dinner at McGarvey's.   After dinner we walked around the town, definitely a place to re-visit.

What would we do without our family and friends.  Dennis and Daniela have been amazing, they picked us up from the airport on Monday and we enjoyed another good dinner at the local rib place.  They went back home on Tuesday, but left us one of their cars to do some sight seeing and shopping.  We went to St. Michaels, Baltimore, and Ocean City by car.

The following pictures are from St. Michaels.

The following pictures are from our trip into Baltimore, most of them were taken from The World Trade Center's observation floor called "The Top of the World", it's the 27th floor.  The view was incredible, and with the temperature and humidity unbearable outside, it was the perfect place to spend some time.

This next set of pictures were taken in Ocean City, Maryland, a very fun place to people watch.

What a great weekend it must have been. Pictures are wonderful. It has been hot and humid here as well. Not complaining-it's not snowing and cold. Miss you. Hugs, Sheron
