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

Aug. 22 - Chesapeake City, MD

Day 157 - Back to the Chesapeake
Chesapeake City Anchorage Basin

Today we started heading south; Philadelphia will be our most northern point for this cruising season. Next year we will pass through the C&D Canal again and head for New Jersey, New York and hopefully into Canada. We will spend the next month exploring Baltimore and some smaller towns on the Chesapeake Bay and then spend a week at in Cambridge at the MTOA Rendezvous.

Today was a beautiful day, clear blue sky and wonderful temperature. I wish I could send a day like today to everyone in Texas. Just remember, when we are enjoying a wonderful day in Texas in a few months it will be very cold here. We stopped in Delaware City for diesel and then moved down the canal to Chesapeake City. I think this has to be one of the prettiest little towns we have been to...so clean and quaint. The main street is full of cute little shops and cozy B&Bs. We took the dinghy into town and wondered down the main street before we had dinner at the Chesapeake Inn Deck. It over looks the anchorage basin and canal. It was very relaxing…a prefect ending to a nice day.
