We are Home!

We returned home this afternoon, exactly 6 months to the day since we left. We traveled 3518 nautical miles. It has been quite an adventure. As we were motoring up the bay from Solomons today we reflected on the mixed feelings we have about our trip ending. We are both happy about returning to our town, friends, condo and conveniences (like dishwasher and washing machine). We are also sad that the adventure is ending. I admit I am happier to be home and George feels more sad that the trip is over. In fact, he joked that we should just keep going. 
Two things we didn't miss while we were away: crab traps and biting black flies. While we were sailing to Solomons yesterday we encountered an area of crab traps that seemed to stretch for miles in every direction.  We were grateful for the enclosure and the shade screens for keeping the flies from eating us alive. 
We spent some time unloading the boat and will finish the job tomorrow. In the coming weeks I will write about what worked, what didn't work and what we wish we had while in the Bahamas.
