N38 50.3 W76 32.1 Galesville MD is on the West River in Anne Arundel County, just about 10 miles south of Annapolis. As you enter the West River from a wide opening with shoals on either side, the river narrows and snakes back into a well protected harbor. Galesville, around for about 300 years, is a very pretty place with tons of sailboats. There are a few restaurants but no real provisioning other than the overpriced "gourmet" liquor store and wine shop. When we woke up and were having our coffee on the poop deck, we were greeted by a pair of swans. We watched them paddle regally from the far bank right up to the boat. After a few disapproving honks because we didn't feed them, the stroked slowly away. We dinghied over to explore a bit - looking for provisions and hardware. Nothing there anymore - the guide mentioned a gricery store but it is out of business. We did meet a nice guy in the boatyard who found a couple of bolts I needed for the solar panels. We lunched on the deck at Pirates Cove - and had some surprisingly good food. After coming back to the boat, we watched a seaplane do "touch and goes" right off our bow. He finally landed and cruised right by giving us a salute as he passed. On Wednesday evening, the local racing club sponsors a beer-can race right off where we are anchored. We have a ringside seat for the start and finish. Tomorrow we head for Annapolis to meet with Brad and Alison - Karen's sister and brother-in-law. Our oldest son Zachary is flying in Sunday to cruise with us for a week. Whoo-Hoo!
