First Light

11:11 PM

First light after a night passage, always anticipated and appreciated. The dim glow of lights from the shoreline, a sliver of moon, and stars above was comforting as we made our way north about 10 miles off shore. Stephen and I took 2 hour watches on a thankfully uneventful passage with silhouetted dolphins jumping beside us and the sparkle of phosphorescence behind the stern. Although uneventful, the sea was incredibly rolly and uncomfortable, tossing us side to side all night. 22 hours after we raised anchor we moored in the oldest city in the US. A good long nap and we’ll be ready to explore.
