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

Aug. 30 - Langford Creek, MD

Day 165 - Peaceful Scenery
Millstone Point - Anchorage

We enjoyed a beautiful morning in Rock Hall watching the birds on the water and the crab boats in the harbor. I could hear the boats leaving early this morning and then I watched them come back in with their baskets of crabs. Stan rode his bike to the post office and hardware store while I updated the blog and did a little bookkeeping.

We decided to have lunch at Waterman's Crab House before we left. I had a crab melt with a cup of
Maryland crab soup and Stan had a fresh flounder sandwich...both were very good. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the beautiful weather...we've been waiting for this weather all summer. Tonight we are anchored in a beautiful creek surrounded by rolling farmland. It is very picturesque. We are miles from any town, so the stars are very bright...you can even see their reflection in the still water. From what we are told there are hundreds of these nice little anchorages around the Chesapeake, and we plan to see as many as we can in the next three weeks.
