OCTOBER 29, 2007
When we woke we said "Happy Anniversary" to "Evergreen" (our boat). It was a year ago today that we took our first sail on her. What a year it has been. She has kept us very busy indeed.
The day was crisp, cold (in the low 30's in the a.m.), clear, and blue. Absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, there was no wind.
So we woke up our faithful Mr Perkins (our engine) and headed for Hudson Creek in the Little Choptank. That is where we had spent our first night on the boat a year ago, so, of course we had to return there on her anniversary.
It was a beautiful as we remembered. Naturally we had to celebrate not only Evergreen's anniversary but also the successful completion of her first summer cruise north. This was a happy day despite the fact that we were not able to set her sails.
