Slower pace at St. Michaels
19 July 2010 | St. Michaels
We left Annapolis and headed across the bay to St. Michaels, a small tourist town. It is known as the town that fooled the Britsh (by putting lanterns in the trees, the British overshot the town and saved many lives and buildings).
St. Michaels is an up-scale resort town. Transient dockage was $3.10/ft/night, the most we had ever paid. Annapolis was the same price, but we opted to take a mooring instead and have some distance from the crowds and noise.
We went to the maritime museum there and the lighthouse. They have a large collection of boats and a working boatyard. Later we strolled through the village and found the grocery store and local restaurants. For dinner we feasted on a pile of steamed crabs. Yum! Yum! Yum!
In the slip next to us was Playing Hooky, a couple our age in a 38' Hunter. Their son was about 5 and loved to play with Maggie. We got together with Mark & Tammy for cocktails one night and their son watched tv below with Maggie laying beside him.
