Sunny and Cool
The wind finally died down enough for us to leave Hampton and start heading north up the Chesapeake. Our first night we anchored in a little creek just north of the Potomac river. Just as we were about to enter the anchorage a storm squall hit us with heavy rain and winds. As viability was next to nothing we needed to turn around and head out into the bay again until things settled down. Once we got into the river it was shallower then expected and we ran aground twice and finally gave up and just anchored in the channel. The next morning a steady stream of crab boats dodged us on their way to work at 6:00 am. The next day took us to the historic town of Oxford on the eastern shore. We fueled up then anchored for the evening. Oxford was a lovely town to stroll around and we had dinner at Schooners overlooking our boat at anchor. We couldn't head up the Chesapeake with out a stop at Annapolis, one of our favorite cities. We anchored in Spa Creek and visited some of our regular haunts. After one day we decided to head over to the east shore again and check out Rock Hall. We took a dock and met several friendly boaters who asked us to join their group at a fun local restaurant. This morning we left early hoping to beat the strong wind that were forecast from the north. It turned out to be a great day and we were able to sail all the way up the rest of the Chesapeake to the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. We will anchor at Chesapeake City for the night then take on the Delaware bay.
