We packed and planned as if this was a grand expedition instead of a two night trip. We re-purposed some old camping gear and stocked up from the dollar store. A friend drove with us down to Kinsale, VA (2.5 hours) and drove our car to the new marina in Deale, MD (thanks Jermaine).
After cleaning and stowing we were ready to shove off. Mark got us to the fuel dock where we didn't need any more diesel. We have no gauge so better safe than sorry.
Day one was crossing the Potomac from Kinsale to Point Lookout. We never raised the sails and the trip was uneventful. Just what we needed. We were both pretty nervous. This was our fist trip without adult supervision.
We ate dinner as the sun went down. Life is good.
