We timed our departure with the current that was going to be ebbing at first to take us down the Patuxent River and then change to a flood as we headed up the Chesapeake Bay. The wave action was OK to begin with and diminished as the day progressed. It was a cloudy day and rained most of the way to Annapolis.
We picked up the Annapolis Mooring Ball #1 in the rain and then settled in to wait for the rain to stop. In the late afternoon we contemplated going ashore. We had picked up the mooring ball closest to the Ego Alley dinghy dock so we could row ashore but called the water taxi to see what they charged and how long a wait we would have should we decide to take it. The charge per person was a bit much considering we would need to pay four fares so we decided to finish the day aboard watching the harbor action in the rain.
Vicki made an excellent dinner and then we finished the evening by watching episode six of Downton Abby, the final season.
