Starting in Hilton Head Island, SC and traveling to the Chesapeake Bay and back.
May 01, 2009: 7-09-08 We’re on the last leg of our journey. We had a nice dinner at Morgan Creek Grill with Bonnie, catching up and enjoying the company. We’ve promised to keep in touch and hope she and her husband will come to visit. Our last evening was quiet as for some strange reason all the boats were obeying the “No Wake” zone in front of the marina. ... » read more40 posts (34153 words) 139 photos 23 comments

May 01, 2009: After a quick stop at Old Point Comfort Marina (The Army’s MWR marina) to pump-out and get gas, we anchored in Willoughby Bay for dinner: some of Laura’s Famous Chicken Pie.

The weather Sunday is supposed to... » read more8 posts (586 words) 23 photos 0 comments

March 20, 2010: I will try once again to post our final blog for Cool Breeze Sails South. In spite of working on it last night and trying to upload photos I made the mistake of hitting the back button which wiped out all my carefully chosen words, and since it was late, I gave up and went to bed. So here we go again . . .. I rose early on our last day on the water and witnessed a beautiful sunrise o... » read more38 posts (26694 words) 160 photos 26 comments
