Shirl is not feeling well. She has a sinus infection, and because of the wind, the waves were building through the night, so I stayed at the helm for the whole 24 hours. I have to start trusting the auto pilot! I will do a post on sailing at night, but tonight I am tired, completely worn out and loving it! I am bruised and sore...this sailing is not easy! Here are some pictures!
Serenity sailing out of New York Harbor...lots of huge ships!
See what I mean.
Why do have the freedom to do what we want...to live our dreams? One beautiful statue. We sailed right past Lady Liberty...a whole new perspective.
As we promised...our home marina where we spend so much time with family and friends. Serenity flies the Lee's Ford flag in New York Harbor.
We passed this boat at sunset.
A ketch passed us on the way to Cape May. See Mom we are not alone...others are doing this!
This is not a good picture...but this is what Atlantic City looks like at night from four miles off the coast. I thought you would like to see it. Notice how dark it is!
We are in Cape May today at Utsch's Marina. Cape may is beautiful, with a lot of restored Victorian homes, thousands of boats, and great seafood. The city was actually the first seashore resort in America. Cape May inlet is busy with boat traffic and a place many cruisers stop when heading south.
The world has an unbelievable amount of beauty...if you slow down enough to give yourself time to see. This was our sunset last night as we sailed south along the coast of New Jersey. Many people ask me why I am doing this sailing adventure. Just look at this picture...and we have no clue what we will see tomorrow.
