OCTOBER 17TH, 2008

Today we woke to rain and the smell of anchovies. It turns out that the north wind was blowing the smell of the Fleeton menhaden fish processing plant our way. Since we both like anchovies we were soon craving pizza with anchovies and a pitcher of ale for breakfast.

We set out midday when we thought the rain had cleared. Instead of rolling down the Bay on a run we changed our plans and headed on a reach across the Bay to Onancock Creek. Unfortunately, it rained off and on the entire time. At least we had a good sail. We anchored just inside Ware Point. It turned out to be a very protected and possibly picturesque anchorage even though the winds were whistling across the dunes of the point. If it had not been raining it would have been a near perfect anchorage. Sorry - no photos due to wind and rain.
