Chef mentioned picnicing facilities on the Rhode River-
I live up in White Marsh Creek, on the Rhode, in a water-access neighborhood. It's a bit further up than the traditional anchorages such as High Island, but not far. It's also very, very sheltered with a muddy bottom and good holding.
My neighborhood has a dock, a small private beach, and a small pavilion and grill for gatherings. I can reserve it for a weekend (free of charge). People who want to come by car, are welcome and I can provide my Avon dinghy as a taxi to get people ashore for a bar-b-que.
I provide the facility, you guys provide the grub.
