We unthreaded the Tidewater Marina needle at 7:30 in an effort to run the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal before the afternoon storms arrived. The sun was out when we left and the water was calm. The bridge at Chesapeake City told us we were on the home stretch to our third state. Along the way we encountered only one interesting boat.
We also encountered a railroad bridge that lifts for boat traffic. Bizarre. We may or may not have taken a hundred or so too many photos of it. Anyway, the C & D Canal is pretty neat.
A boat sporting the AGLCA burgee merged in front of us but skipped Delaware City. Too bad for those folks. Delaware City is dang cool, which is good since we’ll be here for a few days until Dana takes Shannon down to Baltimore for her flight to Los Angeles and her summer job on Catalina Island.
We hosted John and Marilyn (Blue Goose) and Bert (Tyro) for a great evening of Loop talk. Bert is traveling alone on a boat the size of our old Supra ski boat. Pretty impressive.
