This has been called by "experts" as the windiest October in years in the East. After trying for over a month to find a few days with reasonable wind and no rain to make a quick trip to Baltimore in Chuck's boat, we finally went on Monday. Chuck and a friend took the boat to Cape May the day before, and my sister, Georgia joined us as we left from Cape May on what proved to be a rough ride to the Chesapeake.
The Ferry arrived just as we passed out of a very shallow Cape May Canal and into a rough Delaware Bay.
Arriving, finally, at the end of the Chesapeake Delaware Canal, after a two hours longer trip than normal, we were too tired to continue on to Baltimore, and ducked into the calm Sassafras River. Though late in the year, there were still touches of fall colors.
The country might be suffering from a poor economy, but construction seems to be booming in Baltimore's Inner Harbor.
Among the many wonderful things to see in Baltimore's Inner Harbor was the visiting Norwegian 323 foot Tall Ship, used for many year to train sailors.
