Manasquan, NJ

Had great days on the Chesapeake Bay, and also on Delaware Bay. It went downhill from there! We didn't spend any time in Cape May, (well, except for dinner from the Lobster House!) because the weather robot said that we'd have a good day in the ocean the next day. I guess you know how that turned out..... as soon as there was no turning back the VHF went crazy with storm warnings, and the sky coming at us was pitch black. We had high winds and waves, and lightning all around. The first safe inlet was Absecon, (Atlantic City,) and we were relieved to get in. The next day, the robot said 5-10 and 2 foot seas. And, I bet you know how that turned out, too.... 20 knots on the nose, waves and rollers at somewhere around 4 feet. You'd think we'd quit believing that robot!! Anyway, we are safe in Manasquan,NJ, and are going to rest up for a few days here. We're beat!
