After 58 hours of sailing we dropped the anchor in the Rappahannock River. Phew! The passage went well and feels like another accomplishment for both of us. I was quite nervous about going around Cape Hatteras (there are lots of scary stories) but it wasn't bad at all. We didn't experience seas any worse than 4-5 feet.
Now that we are back on the Chesapeake we are going to wait for good conditions before going home. I am writing this as I sit in the cockpit watching the rain.
The enclosure is keeping me warm and dry.
The photo was taken yesterday just after sunrise. It is hard to see the ocean swells.
