Looking at the bouy data this morning, the waves off shore are 22 feet high! I guess there really is a hurricane out there somewhere.
Solomons Island, MD has been our comfy little harbor of refuge from Hurricane Noel. This small community sits at the entrance to the Patuxent River. Stardust is tucked in tight to the narrow anchorage with three other sailboats with tall trees and small hills around to keep the wind off of the boats. Even so, it only blew 30kts in this area, so there were no problems around here. We got all of our errands taken care of, and are set to leave tomorrow for the Potomac if the winds are down as forecasted.
