Sail to Monday Creek on Mobjack Bay

It has been quite a while since I posted on this blog. There are things in our life completely turn things upside down. I am living on a sailboat now, A Island Packet 31. For the first overnight sail of the year I decided to go up to Mobjack Bay. Monday Creek is a small anchorage at the head of the bay. 

Luckily and I left will be harbor at 8 o'clock. A couple of weeks ago I damaged my head sail. I will be putting on a new Yankee and a stay sail soon. For this trip we sailed only under the main sail. With tailwinds the trip up to York River was fairly quick. Once we turned into Mobjack Bay things changed. The current was against us in the boat could not point very well. We were doing two knots. 
There was no hurry. We arrived at Monday Creek by three.
Our shore excursion was cut a little short by numerous flies that were along the Marsh grass.
Overall it was a very enjoyable trip.
The day was finished off by a beautiful sunset.
