We said our good buys to Annapolis City Docks, made our way out Ego Alley and scooted over to the Annapolis City Marina for fuel. Not the best timing as there was a sail boat taking on fuel as we arrived and another M/Y waiting its turn at the fueling station. After bobbing around and checking out all the nearby by boats for about an hour we finally got the OK to approach the dock and begin our process of taking on fuel and pumping out holding tanks.
Today’s journey brought us under the Chesapeake Bridge as we ambled on north. The Bay is now narrowing and filling with recreational boaters as the summer season sets in. Charlene took the wheel for a good part of today, weaving in and out of the crab trap markers, while Dan and Richard worked on the ropes.
As we pulled into tranquil Worton Creek we were greeted by an Osprey chick. Look at how they have grown since we first spied them when the Porters were with us last month.
The marina office and store has it all; a little marine hardware, gifts, shirts, some provisioning supplies, liquor, ice cream, sodas and beer. Well stocked.
Dan and Richard spent the afternoon stripping the back door and the stair railing and will continue tomorrow morning. Always something!
Dinner was a walk up the embankment at the Harbor House. Oysters, lobster and rib eye-does it get any better?
We loved our time at the electric Annapolis with all the pedestrians enjoying the dock area but this serenity is wonderful.
