On our way

On our way

This link is our Spot location. That’s a little gadget that sends signals to satellites to keep you informed of where we are. . . Save it in your favorites and you can watch as we head south.

Patapsco River Power Plant

We left the dock at 8:35 this morning. Leaving Baltimore is good, because it’s all about new beginnings and LOW ADVENTURE, right?

I’m posting some Baltimore/Patapsco River shots here. . . the Power Plant, Sparrows Point (the steel plant that was bought by the Russians but is no longer being operated at all — the picture was taken when it was still producing steel) and the Sandy Point Light, which is in the Bay, near the Bay Bridge. Again, this was taken in easier times, hence the fisherman standing in warm sun. . . which it is NOT today!

Sandy Point Light

This first day has been a bit rougher than we like, starting as beam seas, then pretty much on the nose, anywhere from 1 to 3 footers. Salt spray on the windows makes visibility difficult, especially when driving into the sun. Naja does not like it when we “bang” into a wave. She’s our little tornado dog (we think that’s why she was given up) and she has anxious moments when there are loud noises, or when the “house” shakes. I’m guessing it’s going to take her a few days to get to the point where it’s just part of her life.

Outside temperature is 37 degrees, but we’re cozy inside, as we’re running the generator for heat. I plan to add photos of the boat in the “About” section of the blog so you can see how we’re living.

I won’t be posting here every day, but if you’d like to get an e-mail when there’s a new post, click on “follow” in the sidebar.

  1. Peggy and Hans…Enjoyed meeting you in the “Back Creek Bistro” tonight. You appeared so excited and we understand – being in the same boat (sorry about the pun). What better way to go than with ‘no plan’. We’re pretty sure, given the last few weeks, that that is the ONLY way a boater can go. Fair winds and following seas….
