Early morning departure from Annapolis.

On the Chesapeake at cruising speed

What is this contraption?

This is a Lighthouse ? !


Wind picks up a bit.

What century is this?

Could it be Captain Bligh?

It does look like his ship!

Making good headway for being only 1/2 rigged.

I clocked her at 8 knots! No slouch for a 300 year old design!

I'll turn on my red lights and pull her over...

Can you identify this vessel?

HMS Bounty! (By God, it is Captain Bligh)!

I'm outta here!

There are times when speed is an advantage!

Captain Bligh, indeed!

Another strange lighthouse on the Chesapeake. These were so common you could nearly navigate exclusively by them.

I have to admit, I love sailing. But, great conditions like these are fairly rare.

Another lighthouse closer to my day's destination of Norfolk, VA.
