After 5 hours of sailing-motoring we arrived into St. Michaels harbour and dropped anchor next to our friends Sunny and Glen who had also sailed from the marina that morning on their boat Solare. We rafted the two boats together and settled in for the night with drinks and a BBQ after I had a quick swim in the bay. Tabitha settled quickly and even managed to sleep through a firework display from a wedding in the town. The night was so peaceful on the water.
We were all awake at the break of dawn. I swam in the bay again and we breakfasted on board. At around 11am we took Sunny and Glen's dingy over to St. Michael's for lunch and a look around the shops. The town is really lovely, very picturesque with a really good selection of restaurants and shops. Our visit was a brief one that wetted my appetite to return again.

On our return to the marina mother nature was not on our side so we had to motor all the way back. Tabby was in her element playing throughout the sail and much to Doug's delight she seems to have an alarming interest in his new navigation electronics for the boat.....a true sailor in the making...!
