REMARKS: With a pilot on board by 11:30 pm last night we hauled anchor just after midnight and began the journey towards Philadelphia/Camden, travelling through the Upper Cheasapeak Bay, C&D Canal and Delaware river. There were plenty of boat and buoys to be seen so a lookout was posted throughout the day. Unfortunately we did have to motor the whole way but this also allowed us more time to get the ship looking great for the festival this weekend. Just prior to dinner we dropped anchor again with Philly on one side and Camden on the other where we have an interesting view of the tall ships and military vessels that have arrived so far. A little more TLC tomorrow and the ship will be ready for being open to the public during the festival.
