2015-09 Chesapeake Bay and Land Travel

September 22, 2015

I must confess I haven’t been in much of a writing mood, so here is a very brief update on our last month and a bunch of photos.

We left Morehead City, traveled around Cape Hatteras to the Chesapeake Bay, left the boat in Portsmouth to travel to Portland, Oregon for my niece Mary’s wedding, visited Bradley’s cousin Mark and wife Kris in Bend, Oregon, fixed a problem with our heads (toilets), moved the boat to Deltaville, caught up with friends Brad and Lorraine and Steve D, moved the boat to Georgetown, MD, drove to NYC, saw a show, attended a Rosenberg family lunch, came back and are now heading to Baltimore to pick up a friend who is flying in tonight.

In a week or so we will be at National Harbor in the MD/DC area where we plan to hang out for a month. So if you are in that area, let us know if you have time to drop by!

    Now, there are different factors involved in this process, which determines the friendliness of a website. Using this method will keep you safe from being punished by Google’s strict rules on SEO, and will also mean that what traffic you do get from your SEO work is actually useful and could lead to real sales. Even so, I believe Kris Roadruck made a lot of good sense in his comment when he explained that, “Doing [the redirect] can certainly help would-be linkers know which is the appropriate address to make use of when linking.

    Thanks for sharing the photos of your blocked toilet pipe; very interesting and I’m sure you had a great time fixing it!

    Nice to see photos of all your relatives too; boy you sure have a lot between you. Kim & I could count our rels on the fingers of one hand. I also liked the photo of your course details. It would be nice to be able to provide a relative AIS bearing from each vessel to your vessel and not just the other vessels heading; I’m sure it could be done by interfacing the radar bearing. I do like AIS. It’s not much used in AUS/NZ but I found it invaluable in the UK and in the Med.

    We are fairly well settled in Kyneton; it’s strange being a long way from the ocean but it’s only and hour & a half train ride away. I guess I just got used to seeing it every day from our house in Auckland. Still there are other advantages of living in the Australian Bush; it’s quiet & very clean air and lots of friendly people.

    Nice to catch up with your goings on.

    Will catch up in person one day soon I hope.

    Neil & Suzy.

    Great newsletter and pictures as always. We live vicariously through you and Bradley!

    Thrilled you’ll be in National Harbor. Gail and I would love to come by for a drink some afternoon/early evening. Let us know when you’re “receiving.”

    Wow, Love your site here. When you come back south down the bay , look to your left after the bridge on Kent island. That’s where I live. Will be looking for Shear Madness in the future.LOL. Again thank you for your time in sharing the adventures. Mike

    Hi Kathy,

    Bill and I are leaving on the 24th for a little cruise up the coast to Halifax. We return on the 3rd of October. If you are still at National Harbor we would love to see you. It has been so long. Let me know what if anything works for you.
