Long day up the Potomac River. The Potomac is 6-7 miles wide at the mouth and is still about 4-5 miles wide, 40 miles up, so it feels more like being on a bay for the first half of the day. Very calm and sunny most of the day, but we have current against us much of the time. We have a long day and don't reach our anchorage until 6:00 PM on Mattawomen Creek, nearly 70 miles up the river.
