14 September 2012 Chesapeake City - Severna Park - Annapolis
|View from our Chesapeake City Anchorage|
Our cruise from Cape May on the Delaware River was pleasing to the eye and the soul. The night at anchor in Chesapeake City was serene and still. On Wednesday morning we awoke to pea-soup fog so our early departure was delayed by a couple of hours but the fog lifted to uncloak another remarkable day on the Chesapeake.
We had a dinner date with friends that night who also winter in Marathon-- Jack and Ginger and Tom and Elinor, at whose dock we were tied. They were watching our progress on Find My Friends meanwhile we comfortably made our date with time to spare.
Tom is our cycling guru in Marathon so we did a quick ride Thursday morning. Severna Park has wide and very safe cycling lanes which is enough to make me want to live there---except the temps there in winter are below my comfort zone.

Elinor had orchestrated a lovely luncheon at Severn Inn for 9 couples who were in the area and who also winter in Marathon. It was a sweet and poignant reunion!
This morning after enjoying coffee with Tom and Elinor, we cast off our lines and are on our way (on another glorious Chesapeake day) to see friends, Judy and Curt, on Solomons' Island.
