        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.
        Additional comments. Water depth at the time was 9.2 feet. Winds were NNE.

        We anchored here last night in SW 10-15 and were VERY comfortable. The wind was NE when we entered and the pilings were completely submerged save one lonely post with a cormorant sitting atop. This morning we saw 15-20 pilings where only one was visible the previous afternoon. There is a lot of water in this curve, so stay on the port side going in.
