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

May 30 - Chesapeake City, MD

Chesapeake City Free Dock

We had a short day, from Fairlee Creek to Chesapeake City is less than 30 miles and we had a nice push from the tide. We were tied up and had the AC on before lunch. It was nice to have electricity since it was the hottest day we've seen since we were in the Erie Canal last summer. Chesapeake City is one of our favorite little towns...their waterfront is very cute and well kept. There are lots of cute shops, B&Bs and a few good places to eat. This is our fifth time to stay here; so I won't give the history again...you can do a search of this blog and read some of our older post if you're interested. 

We enjoyed a relaxed afternoon even though it was very warm. I even had a chance to get my hair cut. We went to the Tiki Hut at the Chesapeake Inn for happy hour and then had dinner at The Hole in the Wall. It was nice to have a slow day. On to the Delaware River and Cape May, NJ tomorrow...good-bye Chesapeake Bay. 

Chesapeake City is on the southern end of the C&D Canal. The canal is used by large ships to shorten their run between Philadelphia and Baltimore. It doesn't look like this ship will make it under the bridge...but of course it did.
