its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Sept. 3 - Chester River, MD

Day 169 – Fresh Veggies
Comegys Bight - Anchorage

We took the dinghy to town this morning and went to the farmers market. We both enjoy spending a morning strolling through booths of local produce, fresh baked goods, flowers and artist booths. Today was a prefect day to have a market...plenty of sunshine, light breeze and temperature in the upper 70s. We picked up green beans, onions, peaches, potatoes, fresh bread and a couple of prints from a local artist. On the way back to the boat we did a little Christmas shopping in some of the cute shops in the historic district.

After lunch on board, we pulled the anchor and cruised 1 1/2 hours to a new anchorage off the Chester River in Comegys Bight. There were a lot of people out enjoying the day, crabbing, skiing, fishing, swimming and just cruising around. Our anchorage isn't anything special...just out of the way of the weekend boating traffic. We will find a new spot tomorrow. As soon as we were anchored we put the crab trap in the water...not a lot of luck, but we did get one large crab to share. We'll keep trying.

Dinner this evening was fresh crab, corn on the cob, green beans and new potatoes, broccoli and flat bread made on the grill...very good.
