Glenn : Now that you are on the way back (depending on the wind!!) you can try crisscrossing the Bay to ports like Crisfield, Tangier island, Great Wicomico or many many other ports (Indian Creek?)!!

Have fun - the weather looks to be cooler this week!!

Glenn - with the forecast, remember, there is no bad weather, just bad clothes.  Enjoy this week, and keep us posted.

This morning as were getting ready to leave our third crewmate AJ, who had just joined us in Norfolk had come down with a Kidney stone attack. He gets up early so as I started to get the coffee going around 6 I did not think it out of the ordinary that he as not on the boat. He usually goes for an early walk. He called and said he was by the Marina's head and felt terrible. Steve and I went to find him and he was lying on the picnic table having been vomiting since 3 in the morning and was in pain. We are all 62 years old and have been friends since 1st grade. Aj said to call an ambulance so we did. We were in the middle of no where at an older marina east of Richmond. The ambulance came and took him to a hospital 30 miles away. So now here are 2 62 year olds looking at each other basically saying WTF just happened at 7 in the morning. We could not get his wife on the phone so we did the next best thing and called AJ's parents. Long story made short. He had his first Kidney stone pass at the hospital. He is on his way home and Steve and I are sailing on.

All : This just goes to show that the "Diver Dan" insurance may well be worth that small investment.  You all might look in to what Diver Dan insurance provides!!
