... the city dock ... the old town stretches out before us ... in the background is the capitol dome ... shrouded for repair ... when I was young ... before I married ... I would sail here from my parents' home on the Magothy ... the next river north ... a journey of 10-15 minutes by car ... several hours by sail ... sometimes I sailed alone ... other times with one or two of my friends ... we would tie up ... eat dinner at Apostol's ... (now Middleton's Tavern) ... or Chick & Ruth's Deli ... maybe meet up with some girls ... maybe see a movie ... sometimes just sit and talk with folks on other boats tied alongside ... but always cast off for an evening sail on the bay ... before returning to the dock ... and settling for the night ... before sailing home the next morning ... it was a favorite trip ...
