Well, we did it!
There was a relatively small celebration because, you know, Rona, but it was perfect!
As members of the Americas Great Loop Cruisers Association (AGLCA), we flew the white AGLCA burgee to show we were “In Process” of doing the loop.
Once we crossed our wake (the point where we started the loop), we earned the right to fly the gold AGLCA burgee.
Posing for this picture, we were already hungry to get our platinum burgee.
Few have earned gold.
Even fewer have the platinum.
Moving On – Leaving Essex, Maryland
We rested at Cutter Marina in Essex, Maryland (North Baltimore) for 2 nights.
Yes, that’s right.
We were ready to begin our Platinum Loop.
Platinum Loop on the Here’s To Us!!
Only about 120 boats completed the Great Loop during the 2019-2020 boating season.
The average is usually 150.
As we were closing the gap on finishing our gold loop, we decided to go around again.
I wanted to get a new boat but Sam wanted to keep the Here’s To Us!!
We decided to keep our boat and almost immediately started again.
We just couldn’t find a good replacement for our 1999 Carver 504 that we both liked.
Day 1 is Trip #125
So, on September 2, 2020, we left the marina we couldn’t wait to get back to knowing that we would be celebrating finishing our second loop here someday.
Our destination for trip #125 is the Chesapeake Inn at Chesapeake City, Maryland.
Now, this is the same destination that we had when we left on our gold loop.
However, the last time we stayed on the free wall in Chesapeake City, but this time we decided to stay at the Chesapeake Inn and Resort.
Same place. Different stay.
