Labor Day weekend I had an opportunity to do some cloud studies from the back of the boat. I was inspired by Mary Gilkerson and her 31 day cloud study project. It was a very busy weekend on Battle Creek in the Patuxent River, MD. We had anchored out right in the middle of the creek so we could catch some breeze. It was brutally hot and we have no air conditioning when anchored out. The residents there were, for the most part, very considerate and slowed down while passing us. But there were three groups of water skiers and tubers that buzzed us all day Saturday. To be fair we were right in the middle of the creek. So it was a challenge just standing upright yet alone painting!
