Spring? Is that you?

Here's the funny thing about spring at a Baltimore marina -- it's confused!

The marina is still iced in:
There is still snow on the ground:
And birds are still standing on the ice as they eat their dinner:
But! It's a wonderful 65 degrees inside the boat!
Want to know what's even better than that delightful temperature? It was that warm without any heat on inside the boat. And the cabin door was open. If you've ever wondered what it's like to live inside a greenhouse, move onto a boat. We face the perfect direction for the sun to do all the work and heat up the salon.
Well, if it's that warm inside the boat, just imagine the helm station.
Yup! That says 79 degrees. At one o'clock in the afternoon on March 9 in Baltimore. It was 55 degrees outside (according to my handy iPhone weather app) but I felt like I needed to open a window to make the helm station comfortable. Keep in mind that we had 7 inches of snow just 4 days ago.
Spring is right around the corner and I can't wait.


  1. I've been thinking of you all this past winter! :) Those temps on the inside of the boat are amazing, and 79 at the helm…wow! I'm coming to live with you. :)

    1. It's practically bathing suit weather. :)
