Travel today was easy and without incident of any kind. In fact, we spent the four hours in a small cluster of boats, with Soul Shine ahead of us and Sea Trolley behind us. All loopers. As it turned out, all of us came to the same marina.

quaint little villages, here and there...
We slowed down as Soul Shine pulled off the ICW and headed for the fuel dock. We received instructions to proceed to A dock and someone would meet us there. Stern in. Once I made the turn down the small fairway I realized I probably wanted to back down, which might be easier than spinning 90 degrees given the size. But I committed and, since things were calm, we spun without issue and backed into our slip.

Those folks are loopers but they're about done, crossing their wake when they get to the Chesapeake. In other words, we're in for a long year of mistakes.
A neighboring boater confessed that he too is quite new to the whole boating thing. We decided to start a newbie boaters club. We'll call it the "Oops! Sorry!" Club.
