Sailing on Windfall

I will be gone for about 10 days. Captain Rob asked me to help crew on the Windfall. He has entered her in a schooner race next week down the Chesapeake Bay, from Baltimore to Norfolk.

My brother is here on the island to look after my house and the dog while I am gone. But he's not computer savvy, so I can't get him to post on the blog. I think he will enjoy sittin' on the pizer and reading though. Maybe he'll even get to the beach some. The weather has been just right for enjoying the beach. I've asked Jude to post whenever she gets a few minutes.

In the meanwhile I'll be relaxing on the Windfall, enjoying this beautiful fall weather. Captain Rob even thinks we might win or place in the race. He claims the Windfall is a fast schooner. Maybe he should have gotten a more qualified crew!

See you after the race!

    The Chesapeake Bay the poster child for the anti water pollution movement once considered a dead zone for marine life due to runoff from urban areas over harvesting of oysters -- natures water filtration system and depleted rock fish numbers -- thirty years ago the Chesapeake Bay was an embarrassment---- after Decades of environmental intervention it is recovering Today I look forward to pictures and phillip's account witness to efforts by many to save the Chesapeake Bay
