Day 30 Tides Inn to Solomons Island, MD

 We departed Tides Inn after a great visit at 0630.  Early departure was called for to take advantage of light morning winds.  The forecast was for 15-20 knots with gusts to 25, a small craft advisory was issued.  Direction NE almost on the nose.  Debbie took care of securing the cabin and off we went. We arrived at Zahnisers Marina at 1030, 70 miles today, total to date 1370.    Check of the sea buoys confirmed the forecast but gusts were over 30 knots (35 MPH).  Island Hopper handled it well.

This is an example of the floating buoys that report wind direction, speed and wave heights.  Info is accessible from a computer or in our case on the Sirius weather on the chartplotter.
 Nice homes in Solomons
 Love the 59 Cadillac. Would not want to pay the fuel bill.
