I went on Thursday - opening day. Have to say it was disappointing - at least for me. Nothing new.

Best thing was the roast beef sandwiches. yummi

I went for a late sail and am now anchored up on the severn saltworks creek. Not sure what Ill do tomorrow. It will either be a work day aboard or Ill shoot down and see the show. Where have they moved the dinghy dock? or what is the access by dinghy? Is it worth it?

I thought about going to Annapolis, but after thinking about the bazillions of people there, I decided to do some land cruising in southern Utah. I am allergic to large crowds. The Colorado River was not crowded at all.

One of the things I like about sailing is that it isn't crowded in the places where I sail. If too many people show up, I move Exit Only to another location.

If I'm not sailing, I'll head out into the wilderness for some land cruising, and I get a similar feeling to what I have when I am anchor down in paradise.

My son tried to talk me into going to Annapolis, but this time I resisted.
