There’s no place like gnome

A beautiful Saturday filled with wind seemed like a fairy tale. But that is what we had for the 11:00 sail! We sailed straight across the Chesapeake Bay. Cool breezes with low humidity was a wonderful way to start the day!

The low humidity was with us all day. The breezes slowed down as the day went on. But we still sailed 3/4 of the cruise.

On the last sail we had some great visitors. We had the Mexican Public Television folks on our sail! The program is about this woman, Pamela Correa, who travels around the world trying new adventures, foods and more. Her website is here. So the emphasis on this show was Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay.

I had so much fun watching her engage with some passengers, film her different speeches and sail the boat. This show is sponsored by Travelocity, so the gnome came too!  Everyone on board could get their picture taken with the gnome. So I had to do the same! We had a great sail, beautiful sunset and I think Annapolis will look stunning to all the folks in Mexico looking for a vacation on the Bay.
