After a frustratingly short row due to high winds yesterday, I was rewarded from a much needed visit from my sister and brother-in-law, Laura and David, who live in nearby Dumphries, Virginia. I not only needed a boost from seeing family after 46 days, I also needed a wetsuit for the last portion of this row as a precautionary measure as I enter much colder waters. Laura was able to procure this along with a few other provisions to make the last and hardest part of this row just a tad bit easier. I was also able to lighten my load of things I no longer needed - solar charger, the beach dolly, etc. - things that are unlikely needed now that I am headed to more heavily trafficked and populated areas. After a wonderful dinner in Chesapeake Beach, Laura and Dave dropped me back to my marina - the Breezy Point Marina, the only hostile and unfriendly marina I have encountered during my entire journey. Onward today with a major row up the Chesapeake that includes a crossing of the shipping channel to the east side for the approach to the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal (C&D Canal) in next day or two.
