So why am I writing this blog........?

This blog is a way for me to record and reflect upon my day to day life and all the changes that have happened to me over the past 2 years. In a nut-shell I moved from the rich, bustling streets of London to the sleepy suburbs of Washington DC all in the name of love. My biggest reward in this adventure has been the love of my wonderful husband and the birth of our beautiful daughter. However this transition is not and has not been an easy one; it's been filled with tremendous highs and devastating lows- all part of life's rich tapestry and part of my story that I want to share as a mother, wife and of course as an English girl settling into life across the pond.

Holiday Cruise; Second Destination- Kent Island

Tabby had her first full night of sleep last night which is (was) AMAZING!! Both Doug and I feel rested and we're optimistic for a repeat performance tonight........we'll see......

We left Annapolis at around 11.30am following a leisurely morning.  We weren't in any hurry to set sail as we knew that we had a reasonably short journey to our next destination; Kent Island where we planned to spend the night at a marina called Mears Point.  The weather was beautiful and we made good time on our journey which took around 4 hours.  We motored most of the way but did manage to get a bit of sailing in.

We had to pass under the Chesapeake Bay Bridge which spans 4 miles across the bay.  It was exciting passing under such a huge and oppressive structure, we suddenly felt very small.

We arrived into Mears Point Marina at about 3.30pm, straightened Jubilee out and then headed straight to the pool to let Tabitha cool off and have a splash around.  The Marina is pleasant enough but is very close to a busy main road and the facilities seem a little tired.  It makes me realise how lucky we are to have a slip at Herrington Harbour.
