Sailing on the Chesapeake#5

By handlerstudio  
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Sunset from Waterman's Crab House....they have transient slips at their dock for boats to come in from Rock Hall harbor for dinner...then leave. I usually get their superb crabcakes...but decided this time to have broiled rockfish, a specially (and local caught) of the Chesapeake. We have seen that many times. Included in the versions are views of Waterman's outside (it was a slightly cool and as you can see, beautiful evening). And sunset over the marina and all the masts, and a guy at the restaurant out at the end of the dock. And a few shots of some of our crew in the cabin of Gail Force. Being out on the water (the next morning) was a wonderful escape. Two couples we have sailed with many times....and on the boat, none of us wore masks....off the boat, yes of course.

The white lights on some of the boats on the sunset over the harbor photos are masthead or anchor lights...If you are at anchor, you run those lights all night so people on other boats (possibly running at night) know you are there. Sailboats generally have two or three batteries, called deep discharge batteries, they can run down and be recharged without "penalty". One to start the engine, and the other one or two for the "house" at night. After anchoring, you always turn the battery switch away from the starter battery.

And also a wonderful escape from the awful contention of this country right now....and threatening to last after the election. Our hope....a landslide that might disarm his minions, those of "who shall not be named"...and who may right now be in a drug induced manic state...which it appears it might be. He has been acting a little weird (and how can you tell the difference, one might ask?)

Very hungry for Champlins at PT. Judith----they even have the same Sam Adams umbrellas--- and watching the sunset as we sit outside enjoying some kind of seafood ----
Your images are very evocative!

Looks like you have a wonderful place to escape to also. Ours makes the very best fish and chips. At the moment the fish are constantly jumping. I think you have more fancy boats. A great set Peter. And thank you for your UA, glad you liked it.

An interesting set of images.
Steroids makes a person overly dominant and aggressive, it's not surprising that a person on steroids would act insane.

Of course, in this case Francis, it is hard to tell the difference.

The lead garnered my award Peter ...great low light work with the mighty Olympus. It certainly looks like you folks had a greatbtrip and time together ...
We went away for three days of camping with close friends
and I agree it was nice to be away from masks and
all the dark news for a while.
Best regards
