I was out on a blistering hot summer day working on the boat.
I also let off 3 insect bombs inside the boat because I have noticed some cockroaches appearing over the last couple of months.

Tomorrow at 7.45am, I am scheduled to be hauled out at Jennings Boat yard to have her boat repainted.

It was decommissioned in 1962 and is supposed to be rebuilt near the original location on the eastern side of the Bay near Cape Charles at the mouth of the Chesapeake. The eastern side of the Chesapeake is quite picturesque and less built up compared to the western shore.
It was another great day for sailing down the Atlantic with a good steady breeze and to cap it off a glorious sunset.
My voyage from Ocean city, NJ took less than 2 days.

The other thing that happened to me today that I did get a photo of, was of a cheeky bird in my cockpit. Every now and again, I get these hitchhikers and usually they are tired and need a rest or they are not well. This guy however, was full of energy and started chasing insects around the cockpit, so I gave him some bread.
Would you believe it, but he ate the whole thing and gave me a couple of deposits back in return. It took him ages to eat it and after a couple of hours, he wondered up to the bow of the boat and flew away. I am not sure what kind of gull he was but I suspect that he was young and hadn't learnt to be afraid of humans.

Tomorrow I head out once more to catch this northerly wind and hopefully i will make it to the mouth of the Chesapeake bay Tuesday.
Am heading to Ocean City to take shelter from some bad weather forecast for tonight. So far have motored 1.5 of the 4 days since Boston.
