While visiting Big Bend National Park, we stayed at an RV Park in Lajitas, Texas, about twenty miles from the park entrance. Our RV was parked a short walk from the Rio Grande River and surrounded by beautiful mountains with exciting hiking trails. The daytime scenery was breath-taking. But…

It’s been such a long time since our last blog post (November 19, 2018) that I’ve had a hard time figuring out how to get up to date with things. I guess the only way is to simply start from where we left off (Solomons, Maryland) and run down…

Following our transit across the Chesapeake Bay from its eastern shores and our visit to Tangier Island (see Sailing to the Disappearing Island of Tangier), we made our way into Solomons, Maryland, and Spring Cove Marina. We wanted to check out Solomons as a possible spot to over-winter Dejarlo….

Having spent two thoroughly enjoyable days at anchor in the East River off Mobjack Bay, Virginia, we made our way back out into the Chesapeake and headed towards our next destination, Deltaville, Virginia. While we were only a little more than ten miles “as the crow flies” from Deltaville,…

After five days “on the hard” at Atlantic Yacht Basin, in Chesapeake, Virginia, having our leaking prop shaft seal replaced, it was time to head north again. Our destination was, and has been for the past four months, the Chesapeake Bay. We were so close to it now, we…

September 1, 2018

After a quiet night at our Deep Point anchorage, we had a short, easy day sailing and motoring up the Alligator River. Now, for those of us from the Midwest, we think of a river as a long, slender, winding waterway. Jane and I have always thought a river…

Our planned short stay in Beaufort, NC was extended significantly by the need for alternator maintenance. We’d noticed that the alternator had stopped charging and providing a signal to our tachometer a couple of days out, so we decided that Beaufort would be a good place to get things…

Our return to Southport, NC and Dejarlo after a thirteen-day absence was filled with anticipation. We missed being on the boat and were anxious to see how Dejarlo handled all the inclement weather Southport had experienced while we were gone. As we pulled into the marina parking lot, not…
