Mom and Dad decided to try something different for Red Head’s cruise down the New Jersey shore. It’s never been a favorite passage. The plan was to leave the Sandy Hook anchorage and go nonstop to the Cape Henlopen anchorage in Delaware. It’s a 125 nm passage. If the crew could leave at dawn, then Red Head could be in by dusk. A long day.
The crew was awakened at 4:30 am, happy to receive breakfast early. Dee Dee and Dora quickly settled on the pilothouse settee.
While Dylan chose to settle in front of the starboard side door to catch some breezes. Mom and Dad started hauling the anchor and left the anchorage as the sun rose.
For Dora, it was another first. Her maiden voyage on the ocean. She loved sniffing the ocean air. It was a good trip, although a bit bouncy in the middle of the day. So how did she do?
Why, she handled it with aplomb!
