I would like to go to Popular Island. I spent many, many weekends there in my early sailing times 35 years ago. I recall seeing a “wild” ram with horns there (obviously a long lost domestic ram). And wading in the shallows with hundreds of rays. Our boat drew only 3 feet back then and the chain of little islands (from just north of Coaches island around to the small inhabited island east of Poplar Island that formed the fairly well protected cove) was a perfect weekend getaway from West River. It was a shame when time and tide took away the islands, and I have to wonder about the Phoenix version of Poplar Island's future...

Sailing on The Central Chesapeake Bay, West River, MD on my Catalina 27, Aelous II with my wife and friends.
