Where does the Patuxent end and the Bay Begin?

This is one of those little questions that I just couldn't find the answer to anywhere else. I sail from the West Basin Marina at the Naval Air Station, Patuxent River. Today, I sailed farther from the base than ever before and was just short of passing what is known as Cedar Point, the farthest east point of the naval air station. Is that where the bay "begins," or is it farther east (or west, for that matter)?

I don't have a GPS yet and don't even know if the GPS would help with this question.

Thanks!

The Pax starts at Drum Point. If you were out at Cedar Point, you were in the Bay. Enjoy sailing the Patuxent. It's a beautiful river with good winds. Battle Creek is an especially pretty creek off the River.

Battle Creek? Never heard of it, not in the Cruising Guide. Where is it?

Battle Creek is on the Patuxent's north shore beyond St. Leonard Creek (famous for Vera's), beyond Island Creek (Broome Island). You can dinghy up the creek through reeds like in the movie African Queen. Very pretty!

Beyond Vera's(probably about a mile upstream) on St. Leonard's Creek is also an area where you can dinghy through the reeds. Miss being down in Solomons where there are so many places to sail and with deep water.
