Trance is Back in Town

Victory Lap Week 8/8

Monday May 23, John and Joy departed after breakfast. Shortly afterwards we departed from the Town Point Marina in Deale, MD. Our destination is the Wye East River on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake.

Our friend Yana in Hawaii has many friends. Daphne is one of her dear friends. We anchored in front of her house on the East Wye River. She invited us in, we had champagne, dinner and a tour of the property by golf cart. This day reminds me of that childhood song, ”The More We Get Together”…the chorus, “cause your friends are my friends and my friends are your friends”.

    1. Sorry Evelyn I just saw your comment. We started out in our 20’s as small boat sailors, racing Thistles, a 17ft one design sailboat. So about 40 years. Trance was purchased in 2018, our first “big boat”. The sailing part easy, all the electronics took a little time.
