We were almost without a dinghy
Did you know that it is illegal to tie your boat up to a seawall in Washington, DC? We didn’t. Unfortunately for us, the police officer who almost impounded our dinghy yesterday was aware of this law.
We had been eying the park just across the channel from where we are anchored and thought that it would be a great place to work out. There is a perfect wall to tie up to which, coincidentally, had no other boats on it. Imagine that?
Just as we were nearing the end of the TRX portion of our workout session, I spied a police boat slowing down to tie up right by our dinghy. Knowing that this was not looking good for us, I dashed over and intercepted him. Luckily he was cool and let us go when I told him we would pack up and leave. I’m sure he had better things to be doing than towing some little dinghy back to his station anyway.
Look closely and you can see our boat Zero To Cruising in the background.
