Companions on the Chesapeake
28 April 2010 | Bohemia River, MD
Continuing on our way yesterday we had a rough ride for most of the morning with over four foot waves from the north. An hour before Annapolis everything got very calm and pleasant. The merchant ships are anchored off Annapolis, probably waiting to get in to Baltimore harbor. Ronnie and Stu Rosenwasser arrived shortly after we docked and took us back to D.C. to view their beautiful new kitchen, many years in the planning - it is to be envied. When we got back to the boat this morning preparing to get underway we were wonderfully surprised to see Sally and Bill Garrett and Sue Volgenau stopping by the marina for a quick visit. The rest of our day was choppy with strong westerly winds. We are anchored in the Bohemia River at the North end of the Chesapeake. This area is rich in history dating back to the 1650's. Farther along the river it turns into Bohemia Creek, a perfect setting for horse farming including the duPont's Woodstock farm, home to Kelso and Northern Dancer. A full moon is rising in the east as I write this and it is truly brilliant.
