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

Anchor Bay East Marina

“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”
―T. S. Eliot

We had a beautiful day to travel up the Chesapeake to the Baltimore area. There were boats….EVERYWHERE. Between it being a beautiful Sunday and a holiday weekend the bay was full of sailboats, jet boats, fishing boats and cruisers…plus people actually doing a little work, like cargo ships and crabbers.

It’s time for the next break in our cruising season. We're flying home this week to see family and friends. After a few weeks in Texas we'll help our oldest son and his family move to Pennsylvania. We’ll spend a few weeks there helping out and exploring the countryside. We’ll continue our trip north when we return the beginning of July. There are so many options on places to go, so stay turned to find out where we’ll go from here.

This must have been a great place to catch fish, because there were a lot of people there

  1. The Chesapeake is so much more fun when she's calm! Happy to see that you guys made it to Anchor Bay...David says you should try one of the Hard Yacht Cafe's crab topped burgers before you head home. If you get a chance, you'd enjoy a trip to Schultz's for a crab cake and their cream of crab soup.

    1. We're hoping to make it to Schultz's when we get back. Thanks for the info. Looks like y'all are having a great time. Enjoy.
