Lori and I went over to Blackstone Marina to pump out the holding tank. Although the head had not been used all summer, it needed to be pumped out from having been winterized. When we returned, Lori changed the hose on the engine so we no longer have the small leak.

At first I worried it might be a bit too rough, then I thought – it’ll be a lot more calm than the English Channel so it will be fine.

Somewhere in St. Leonard’s Creek our boat rolled over the 500 hour mark. I wish I had paid closer attention as I wanted to stop and have a special celebration.

We then continued up the Patuxent to Benedict and Club Billings. We hung out at Club Billings for the afternoon before finally returning home. I wanted Lester to have a chance to meet the English people, since his mother came from England.
