A Sailboat Underway Along Back Creek on a Fairly Warm Summer Day in Annapolis Maryland August 13th 2016

I really admire those individuals and crews out sailing today what with the oppressive heat and humidity conditions inundating the Annapolis area. Heck I could not even find the mettle to put my kayak in the water earlier due to the morning’s warm temperatures then prevalent on Spa Creek.

It was also readily apparent, at least to me anyway, that it was way too hot for any historical architecture photography walk today. On a somewhat related topic I wonder how those gentlemen and ladies serving as local guides while attired in period dress will fair today as they conduct their tours.

Anyway I had opted to hang out with friends at a Back Creek marina, however I did keep a camera next to me in case any visual opportunities presented themselves, at least those requiring more than the ubiquitous camera on my iPhone 6S+. Surprisingly, again due to this Summer heat wave, the traffic navigating towards the Chesapeake Bay via the nearby mouth of the Severn River was constant and consisted mostly of sailboats. It was from my then as well as current location, sitting in a beach chair set beneath a sizeable umbrella, that I felt an ongoing slight breeze on my skin. Being a bit curious I asked our host if they knew the current wind conditions to which after a quick gaze across the creek said at least 8 knots or so it seemed to them.

Well with that kind of wind speed today’s sailing conditions might not be all that bad for those sailors I’ve been seeing passing by this afternoon. Oh as for myself well I intend to remain under the umbrella where I’ve been composing today’s blog post for the last half hour. Okay then its time to click on that post button and go get another cold drink from our host.

Be safe out on the water today by keeping an eye out for other vessels along with wearing your PFD oh and please keep well hydrated as well,

Glenn
