We love the little town Chesapeake City which is half way into the C&D canal, going from Delaware to Maryland. We were able to stay an entire week at the free City Dock…what a luxury.
We tried to give back to the town by eating outside and shopping. All people were so friendly and welcoming.
We also enjoyed our first bike ride on the other side of the canal which brought us over the Delaware / Maryland state boarder. It was though scary to cross on the “highway” bridge over to get to the bike trail.
We got a lot of work done as well with perfect internet access.
On Friday after business calls, we left for an overnight stay at Worton Creek. The anchorage was very pretty with no other boats.
It was a clear sky and we put some warm clothes on to watch the stars, lying on top of our boat.
In the morning we woke up with the birds chirping, apparently you can see eagles and osprey when you are lucky, unfortunately we were not that lucky.
After enjoying the sunrise with a coffee we made our way to Annapolis.
The water was so flat and we were skimming over the water. After a short time we could see already the Chesapeake Bay bridge.
Our way (yellow line) from Worton to Annapolis
We have been in Annapolis before but staying just in front of the city in the mooring area is definitely our favorite spot.
Second picture below on the right – my finger pointing to our boat.
There is a free dinghy dock so we can go quickly into town.
Before picking up a mooring ball we took on some Diesel, can you believe that we paid less than $2 per gallon? Especially with our Diesel consumption of 18 GAL an hour, this was a big saving. We using a lot the generator to charge the batteries and the heater, both running with Diesel as well.
We hoped to meet up with our courages couple from Cape May, but Hunter was sailing two days almost non stop so they wanted to rest, but we were able to wave to them when he picked up Tiawni from the dock.
We also met a nice Dutch couple in Chesapeake City who are moored right next to us. They are the coolest – love Trader Joe’s as much as me and brought even a few things back from their excursion there. We met them for dinner and enjoyed inspiring talks. We shall meet again.
Love, love, love Annapolis! A favorite of ours. So much to see, and great restaurants. Try to catch the ceremony on campus at the Naval Academy just before noon. Quite impressive!
Have fun and safe travels!
