10/26/20: A Foggy Start

This time 'round we decided to get to Hampton Roads in the southern Chesapeake Bay, and near the entrance to the ICW, without delay. Three years ago we spent nearly two weeks covering that distance, enjoying lovely stays at Annapolis and Cambridge before being stalled at the dock at Solomons and Deltaville due to wind and rain. 

Fog was hanging in the air as we left Baltimore. We had about a mile of visibility, so off we went. The Bay Bridge loomed ghostly in the distance and above us as we moved beyond. The waters were quiet with very little activity save a huge container ship whose giant wake jarred us awake. We felt we deserved that lovely glass of wine at day's end, compliments of friends Bill and Lisa Tate.
