Month-long Sailing Trip:
Swan Creek & Rock Hall
Thursday, July 17
|I have always considered the Chesapeake Bay Bridge as a demarcation |
between the northern part of the bay and mid-Bay.
|Swan Creek is very quit, even though there are six large marinas within a distance of about one mile.|
|Swan Creek Marina has not changed much in 40 years.|
|This was our view of sunset from our mooring buoy in Swan Creek. It's funny |
that at home we never even notice sunsets.
Friday, July 18
|We found this great coffee shop called Java Rock--it is located |
on the corner of Main Street and Sharp Street.
|We stopped at the Watermen's Crab House for lunch and Maggie had two hard shell crabs.|
|This is some of what remained of the two crabs.|
|We had a good time shopping in town. It's good that one of the bikes had a basket |
on the front so that we could carry our goodies back to the boat.
|Rock Hall has a public beach on the Chesapeake--this was added sometime in the last 40 years.|
|This is a new pillow that we picked up in one of the shops in Rock Hall today. |
We have recently decided that we have to reupholster the settees in the boat
before our trip south--so, it has to match this pillow!
|Captain Jack manning the main sheet winch in the late afternoon.|
|We had a cold dinner of spicy roll ups and red skin potato salad. The spicy roll ups were made |
with whole grain tortillas, jalapeño cream cheese, celery, sliced ham, and iceberg lettuce.
|A sailboat leaves Swan Creek late Friday afternoon under a main sail and a red drifter.|
We will be leaving Swan Creek first thing in the morning and heading further north to Still Pond. We really enjoyed our stay in Swan Creek and Rock Hall.
