As much as we had hoped for a day like our prior travel day (we always hope) – sunny and hot and calm – it was instead a fairly dreary morning as we pulled out of Herrington Harbour South Marina enduring overcast skies and misty, raw conditions. As we made our way onto the Chesapeake there was a light chop and light fog that never really seemed to lift throughout our trip.

The beautiful, warm and sunny day of our arrival disappeared into the dark and we awoke to the chill of a gray and gloomy day.

It was an easy, relatively short run to Baltimore and as much as we enjoy running the boat, it was one of those days where it just felt like we were getting it from one place to the other. We’ve never been to Baltimore by boat before and decided to try it out as a “destination” stop on the trip even though it started to become apparent that we wouldn’t be able to stay more than one night because of some weather we want to beat to Cape May, New Jersey which is another two days away.

We chose Anchorage Marina in the Canton area and we’re happy we did. Dockmaster Wayne could not have been nicer and they’ve been busy working on the infrastructure here with a lot of money invested in beautiful, new Bellingham Ipe docks.

Our biggest motivation for making it to Baltimore was to visit with our dear friends, “Fast” Jimi and his wife Sarah. Fast and A.J. became friends when they worked together many years ago at WPLJ in New York City. It was GREAT to see them!

We leave you with this clever little monster… we know a few places that could use something like this!

We’re getting close to the home stretch. A utility stop on the C&D Canal is next before we make our way into New Jersey and then New York. See you out there!

  1. We stayed at the Anchorage Marina last week! Been there previously, and left the boat with Wayne for the 2 weeks I was back in Panama in November. A great place, conveniently located, and Wayne is a great and friendly Dockmaster. Hope you took the short walk to Fells Point. A hundred bars and restaurants plus interesting shopping! Safeway, Starbucks, and the Outback right across the street! And down Boston Ave. about 4 blocks is the Sip & Bite diner! Been there for 71 years! Best diner food anywhere!
