Day: 228  Miles: 00   Total Miles: 2646  Locks: 23

We woke up in the morning and the weather forecast for the Bay was not great.  After a brief discussion we decided this would be a good day to stay and tour downtown Annapolis.  There used to be a water-taxi but it no longer ran from this marina.  The dock-master graciously volunteered to drive us into town. We walked the many shops, had another great late lunch, and walked up the hill to visit St Mary’s Church (1888) where the Navy anthem Anchors Away was penned.  It was a very beautiful old church.  That is, it was old in American terms. (This is for my sister’s benefit, who one year dragged me through more “old” churches in Europe then I thought was possible.)

Then back to the Emery El for an evening of planning for the next few days and a hard look at the weather.  Tomorrow will be an easy 32 miles to Baltimore, but the next three days after that will be very long days and over very rough waters.  We have to find the right weather window or it will not be pleasant.
