SOLOMANS ISLAND AREA, ON THE PATUXENT RIVER, MD
16 November, 2004. I fought the waves all day today and couldn't see the shore for most of it. II was a nervous wreck. We arrived in the main harbor after dark but there was plenty of light coming from the businesses and marinas onshore. We dropped anchor alongside several other boats. There were several large swans swimming in the harbor and I saw a few shooting stars. Just before dawn, we realized that we had drifted a bit so we reset the anchor and watched closely from that point on. It was time to process orders and we needed to do laundry, take showers and get gas so we decided to find a nearby marina to spend the day and night at.
