At Anchor in St Michael's Harbor

Well, it warmed up to 60 degrees today, but the sun shown part of the day which helped. After a quiet night on a borrowed mooring in Lake Ogleton, we left to sail across the Bay and up the Miles R. to St Michael's, a very popular tourist town, with quaint houses and lots of quality shops, antiques, artisans. We are in a small mooring field and dinghied to shore for a short walk up the Main St. Tomorrow we will go to the Chesapeake Maritime Museum, which we are both looking forward to.

We are getting good at picking up moorings and anchoring. The boat in front of us is from Australia, so we stopped to say hi from our dinghy. They are sailors who had a smaller sailboat in Australia and wanted to buy up. they found the prices in the US much lower, so after hunting, found this boat in Annapolis and will sail it to Australia, traveling as we are south and then through the Panama Canal. And we think we are adventurous!

Some pictures here of our anchorage, the shops, and the lovely sailboat race, just off the harbor, late this afternoon. Also, Joe busy at his computer!
