Washington D.C.

This is not the first time I have been in Washington, D.C. I went here about five years ago, when we were looking for boats. We had seen a tiny portion of the Air and Space museum and the Museum of Natural History. Dad needed to go here for some job interviews, so when he was out to do those interviews, we went to the museums that we did not see last time. We went to the flight simulators in Air and Apace, for example. We also saw three movies throughout all of the museums we went to (only two, unfortunately). It was fun.

Rinsing and drying

The sea anchor which we never had to use, thank goodness.

And, looking at it now, it's clear this is probably a one-time use device -- imagine trying to get this back aboard in sloppy, 20- or 25-foot seas left over from a gale strong enough to require its use.

Penultimate step

Fifty feet from the slipway where we'll haul out tomorrow morning. First night tied to shore since Santa Cruz de La Palma, Islas Canarias.

25 months later,

Our final night at anchor before coming out of the water, our windscoop gives up the ghost in a summer Chesapeake squall.

Thank you for the many cooling breezes.

Wow. It looks even bigger like this.

And this is only the yankee.
