"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Aug. 16 - Severn River, MD

Day 151 - Beautiful Day
Clements Creek - Anchorage

The morning was so nice we decided to take our bikes ashore and get a little exercise. We rode to a couple of marine stores and then we stopped at Giants (a grocery store). We didn't really need anything at the marine stores, but it's always a good place look. We really are getting pretty good at hauling groceries back on our bikes.

Like hotels, marinas have check times. Check out here was noon, so we took our time getting things squared away on the boat and then had lunch before we left. We weren't going far today...just up the Severn River, past Annapolis and the Naval Academy to Clements Creek. Annapolis is at the mouth of the Severn River in Spa Creek. Clements Creek is only five or six miles past that, the Navy has mooring balls here that people can use free. It's a pretty, peaceful little place with homes hidden away in the trees on the hills. We both agree this is one of the prettiest anchorages we have been in. We aren't moving very far each day, just taking our time and enjoying the weather. We are slowly making our way to Baltimore and then we will explore the east coast of the Chesapeake Bay. There are hundreds of beautiful places to stop and explore. The only thing on our schedule is the MTOA Rendezvous in Cambridge, MD around September 20. After the rendezvous we will start moving the boat south to Great Bridge, VA, where we plan to leave the boat for the winter.

We've seen these signs a lot here - thought it was neat, our signs at home are for hurricane evacuation routes
