Beyond Halloween...

Steve Madden (from M Yacht Services) and his wife Wendy  
were kind enough to invite us to their home for Halloween
Arriving, they had the front of their property looking great...



The children, and parents that came knocking on the door were gorgeous,
All dressed up… We had many Ninjas, The Simpsons, Wonder Woman,  Little Policemen.  





Wendy had made us Roast Lamb for dinner, we had a great night of wonderful food, free flowing wine and great company!

We had spent one month in Annapolis.
Our Rose had all the jobs completed on her that we had organized (thank you to M Yacht Services)…

We reprovisioned to overflowing, taking the opportunity of having an address for a month and stocked up on filters, cleaning products and anything else we had found hard to source, then finally it was time to move on.

We anchored at a spot at Solomons Islands.  We walked to the Annie Marie Gardens and Sculture.



There was an art exhibition on showing “edible” type art - the first two are both "knotted" fabric




This mural is made out of plastic bottles…



The sculpture gardens were great, with lots of artistic bird houses




And many other sculptures, 








including this “miniture” park bench in a playhouse



We dropped anchorage at a beautiful spot in Irvington…




We walked to the local vineyard and had a winetasting



While in Irvington we bought insulation to wrap around our hot water cylinder – it is certainly cooling down!

It is now getting extremely cold.



This is "ice" in the bottom of our dinghy.
