Admittedly, we've been terribly remiss in posting this blog entry. Cielo has now been out of the water for just over a month. After our diversion to Beaufort, NC, from our intended destination of Norfolk, VA, we spent a weekend in Beaufort before continuing on. Kyle left us in Beaufort and flew back to New York, and Lizz and I had an uneventful sail the last 200 miles around Cape Hatteras and up to Norfolk. We met up with Lizz Sr. in Solomons, MD, and had a two day glorious spinnaker run up the miraculously powerboat-free Chesapeake Bay. We arrived in Havre de Grace at the end of May and Cielo was comfortably resting "on the hard" two days later.

We'll be traveling around visiting family and friends until mid-July, at which point we'll be spending as much time as possible attending to Cielo's exceedingly long project list. Cielo will be back in the water the first week of October, at which point we'll start the journey south again. This winter's plans include the Bahamas, a country that rhymes with "tuba", and the southwestern Caribbean. We won't bore you with project details, so there probably won't be much to report until October.
