Day 34 – Oct 9, 2017 – Saint Michaels, MD

We moved to the Marina around noon today. By the time both boats were settled in their slips blue sky started to appear and the sun came out. Maybe it rained all day somewhere in the Chesapeake but we were happy it didn’t in Saint Michaels. Bob and I tried the bakery again, got a loaf of bread and some cookies. We then went to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum which we had been able to see from our anchorage. Much of it was outdoors so we’re lucky the weather improved. There was a large working boatyard where shipwrights were restoring and building Chesapeake Bay boats.the area had and still has and a large fishing/clam/crab industry. A highlight was the 1879 Hooper Straight Lighthouse which was rescued and restored.

I/we decided to give up on the Thanksgiving day dinner on board and ate at one of the restaurants at the marina. Bob got the last piece of pumpkin cheesecake in honour of the holiday.
