Chesapeake City, MD to Galesville, MD
Rhode Island to Florida - Day 10
Yesterday after we arrived we were greeted by Jeff Tuer. He is a captain for the local TowBoatUS affiliate here in Chesapeake City. We had become friends on Facebook and he knew we were arriving and he stopped to visit. We spent several hours together with Jeff and his wife and had an awesome evening with them.
We departed from Chesapeake City at approximately 0700 hours just as the tide was switching from flood to ebb. Our destination for the day was Galesville, MD off the West River south of Annapolis. MD. We have stopped here several times and find it to be a good stop for the night.
Weather for the day was totally as predicted… less than 1 foot seas… most of the day it was flat calm and the ebb tide gave us a boost of speed for most of the day… 8 knots plus… it was great… but it can’t last forever and a hour or so before arriving in Galesville we started to experience a little current on our bow and slowed slightly.
Nothing out of the ordinary happened today… several boats passed us going north as south… most seemed like locals rather than cruiser heading south. Overall it was an awesome day of cruising.
We arrived to Galesville, MD at approximately 1500 hours and docked at the city docks which between Pirates Cove and Thursday’s Restaurant. Our location is N38°50.54’, W076°32.347.
We traveled today for 8 hours covering 56.77 nautical miles averaging 7.1 knots.
