In the morning we left Bayside Marina and first stopped at Dockside Marina in order to fill up on fuel prior to navigating towards home. Once finished we departed Dockside Marina at 12:30 pm. Both the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay had flat water, almost like glass. Sooooo refreshing to finally have smooth water while out on the Bay. We entered the Bay at about 1:45 pm and entered the Patuxent River by 2:30. An amazingly fast journey.

We stopped at Blackstone Marina, at 48.8 hrs, in order to empty the head holding tank. After finishing the pump out we went home to drop off Sophie. She had no interest in going back out again – she had had enough of being on the boat.

En route Lori egged me on to race four boats also heading towards Broomes. I opened it up to 5000 RPM and zoomed right past them and into Island Creek and to Stoney’s. After a short time of talking with people we headed for home. In our creek Lori pointed out a boat behind us that appeared to want to overtake us. Again she says, “I think you can beat them – punch it.” Once I did that they had no chance of catching up with us.
