The initial plan was to head up Eastern Bay and to the Wye, but light SE wind meant zero apparent wind for us on one of the hottest days of the trip. We decided to stay cool and turned NW back toward the West/Rhode mouth. Ended up dropping the hook off Galesville and jumping in the surprisingly nettle-free water to cool off. We took the dinghy to the town dock and walked around looking to see if there was anything to do. There wasn't but oddly we did find an open house so we walked in and checked it out. Great views of the West River if you've got $975k. We capped off the evening with a nice dinner at Pirate's Cove.
There is surprisingly little to do in Galesville aside from dinner and a band at Pirate's Cove. I suspect that's the way they like it. As for the house, it seems every home I drive past in Galesville or on Chalk Point is for sale. Wonder if they know something we don't... Any who, glad you enjoyed your night on the West River. It's our first season docking there and we love it.
