Solomons Island, Patuxent River, Chesapeake Bay
We rounded off our stay in
Annapolis, finishing on a high, by catching up with our good friends Mike and
Marguerite, who crossed the Atlantic at the same time as us in their boat
Ithaca, and we enjoyed a wonderful meal at their home on the banks of Saltworks
Creek a little further up the Severn River. We do hope our paths cross
again in the future.
An early morning departure saw
us catching the ebb tide past Annapolis and down the Chesapeake Bay, though the
very light winds meant that we had to motorsail more than we would have
liked. However we were able to make good progress and arrived at Solomons
Island, our chosen overnight stop, in good time.
