We were back traveling on the water again!!! Today saw us leaving the Fischer’s on Island Creek, wending our way out to the Choptank River and then heading north. We passed through the Knapps Narrows Bridge, a man-made cut through Tilghman Island that shortens the route from the Choptank to the Eastern Bay.

Next came the Kent Island Bridge. The 65’ fixed bridge, an extension of US 50 and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, offered no obstacle to our passage but we had to wait for an opening of the old bascule bridge that carries local traffic.
Our night’s destination was Rock Hall Harbor where we tied up to the wall and endured a hot night with no power, thus no air conditioning. Actually, the bedroom fan kept the air moving and our room comfortable.
