Anchoring out takes skill, practice, and patience. If done right, the reward is a quiet, peaceful, adventure.
In the US, waterways are public. That means you can anchor almost anywhere, outside of a designated boating channel (which would be dangerous and plain stupid, by the way), for free. Rodger, Dodger, it’s free.
St. Mary’s, Maryland
Exhale anchored out with Reality at St. Mary’s College of Maryland; a peaceful little cove.
While visiting the campus we learned how to tell time like ancient mariners, using a sundial. Lorrie and Rick (the CPA’s of course) were able to accurately read the sundial, plus a one hour change for daylight savings time. Something new, something fun.
Bagels for Breakfast
When we anchor out, we eat pretty well, especially when our boating buddies join us!
Thanks, Lorrie for the Lox.
Cruising the Chesapeake
We were up close (but not TOO close) to a Liberty Ship (American Mariner) used by the Navy for live target practice.

Sending warm wishes to all the moms in our lives!
Next Stop – Crisfield, Maryland (we arrived today, May 9), followed by more quiet coves on the Chesapeake – now that we are getting better at anchoring. Thanks, Reality Check.
