On June 27th we took the future Rode Trip out for a sail towards the Isles of Shoals. Stephanie had a lot of time at the helm and we had a great trip down the river and about half way out to the Isles, when we saw a line of rain headed in our direction. We decided that hanging out at the Isles in the rain wasn't going to be that much fun and turned around. Once back at the mooring we enjoyed a bottle of wine that was given to us as a wedding present by the Markapotomous ( my younger brother). We had a great lunch before heading home.

Non-sailors will appreciate the pun in the name when they learn that a "rode" is the anchor line, rope or cable connecting the anchor to the vessel.
