Mid-Atlantic February Boating

It's near 70 outside, 75 in the cockpit, and 72 in the cabin. Granted, tomorrow there's a gale:


Saturday: WNW wind 17 to 22 kt increasing to 22 to 27 kt in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 48 kt. Sunny. Seas 1 ft building to 3 ft.


The plan is to spend 2 nights in downtown Baltimore at Inner Harbor East Marina. Dinner tonight at Roy's Restaurant (Hawaiian Fusion), our favorite restaurant. Tomorrow is a free day to get blown off the pier walk around. We'll head back Sunday when winds will be less than 15 knots, decreasing to light and variable.


Here's our empty slip via the boat-cam:




And here's a few shots from the trip downtown:







It was a great trip (especially for February!).  Checking the temperature at our ski mountain shows 65, so boating was a better option!
