Our first little storm

We absolutely love the anchor place in Cape May in front of the Coast Guard. It’s so super quiet – especially at night we sleep like babies…

We asked on Facebook via the liverboard group about advise where to park our Dingy and got to explore the beautiful Spicer Greek – it goes all the way to the city of Cape May but it has a very low Railway bridge towards the end. I didn’t feel 100% (I had some neck pain – not sure I pulled something) so I didn’t push the adventure to the top to leave our Dingy there and walk on the Rail way to the city…. maybe next time :-).

We found though the recommended Boat Ramp (at Spicer Greek) and left the Dingy there while we had some coffee on land.

The weather has been amazing, but we have been watching the forecast…. and after going back and forth and getting some consulting sessions with our boating friends Pam, Nancy and especially James our sailboat neighbor who patiently talked to us for some time we felt ready to stay on anchor for the little storm. The worst was forecasted for Wednesday afternoon….

However last night before Marcus went to bed he checked the forecast one more time and it changed…..to the worse…. from gusting 29 to gusting 45… I really panicked for a moment, but then decided nothing I can can do it’s too late to move the boat to a marina and the night should be ok…

This morning when we checked the forecast again… it changed again… to a more comfortable forecast – actually the best we had so far 🙂

On a side note we have met the most adventures couple ever! They bought a sail boat a few weeks ago. Tiawni follows with her car and Hunter drives the boat from Rhode Island to Georgia with not much prior experience. They were anchoring besides us in Cape May and have two dead batteries. They don’t have a radio but got our attention yesterday. I drove them to land so they could charge their battery – unfortunately it was not enough – then we charged one battery over night, but it still wasn’t enough so now Marcus is driving them to land so they can get it charged at a professional shop. We admire their courage and persistence and wish them many successful happy hours on their boat – if you like to see how they got started check out their Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sailingwithcrimson/
