    Anchored near the tip of the 7 foot contour line. Wind and current made anchoring difficult for this beginner salor. Muddy bottom. Anchor held good. Winds are out of the North at 11 kts gusting to 20 kts. The next morning the winds were steady at 15 kts.
    Only thing protecting us from the wind was the dodger. Temp was about 55 during the day. 40 or so at night.
    Beautiful view of the sunset followed shortly thereafter by a sliver of a moon.
