We couldn’t leave

    Tuesday mornings bright and early we untied and left Atlantic City, NJ.  We went out the Absecon Inlet with a forecast of only 3-4 foot waves.  Kent had checked the tides and they were at transition between high or low which means the flow would not add to the waves. The farther out…
