Favorite Chesapeake Kakak locations

Not those you can reach with a car--though I would love to hear of those too--but those that are nice for exploration while anchored, perhaps but not necessarily for the night. Certainly the possibilities are endless, so which ones are worthwhile as destinations.

A few I have particularly enjoyed:

* Janes Island. Accessible from the Chrisfield marina (is there any good anchorage that is close--everything seemed very shallow).
* Taylor Island Wild Life Refuge (actually much of the marsh outside the refuge). Accessible from Slaughter Creek.
* Tangier Island. Parks Marina.
* Smith Island. Smith Island Marina. They will actually lend a kayak.

I plan to investigate more of the Honga River / Fishing Bay area this summer. That could take some time.

Any particularly interesting areas?
