Chesapeake and Delaware

We have spent the last few days on the Chesapeake and Delaware.  We spent two days in Annapolis getting sails restitched and browsing through the many marine stores there.

We then motored/sailed up to the D&C Canal and over to the Delaware ending up at Cape May.  Unfortunately we didn't get a lot of sailing wind on this leg of the trip but the weather was mostly sunny and it warmed up the last couple of days.
We got quite a push from the current on the Chesapeake which brought our speed up considerably

Last night we arrived in Atlantic City so we went ashore and had dinner and played the slots for a minute or two - and left, while our luck was still with us, over $50 richer.  Today we are making the long trip to New York City, under grey skies and light winds.
