Try Va Street on Sat or Sunday morning for a great buffet breakfast

I thought of another pretty new eating place in Deltaville, it's called Bella's. it's pretty nice, jim the owner has a great staff, it's a Pizza & sub place but you can also get full meals there.
Some other anchorages Glinda & I went to this summer were Yapps Cove off Carter Creek to the right and Carter Cove off to the left. We also had a great time off the Corrotoman River across from Yankee Pt. Marina, a bunch of very peacefull places to anchor and they have a new dinning area at the marina.

I haven't been yet but I was told the municipal marina was recently refurbished. New Heads/Shower facilities, docks, etc. Lots of room to anchor also. Both times we have been we have been escorted up the channel by pods of dolphins.

I used to live on Tabbs Creek, just off the Bay a couple of miles east of White Stone. Great area to live and sail in! All the recommendations you've been given are great. Now that Grog Island is gone, lot of people anchor off the sandy beach opposite the entrance to Antipoison Creek in Fleet's Bay.
Since your Dad is based in Carter Creek now, he should check out the Rappahannock River Yacht Club in Irvington if he has a sailboat. It's a great little sailing club, with a non-pretentious little clubhouse and dock on the Creek.

A strong memory. So yeah, it's sentimental.

They say the channel is dredged to 6'5", but we went in on a extreme low tide and just missed the edge of the channel due to the "local advice" we were given. My brother was there the year before and had no problem with his 5'2" boat, and there a few other sails including a big (50-60') steel schooner tourist boat that is based out of the marina.
Bay Creek 8-08
For the Delmarva trip, I would think the municipal marina would be preferred as Bay Creek is a bit pricey.

We did a 11 day Southern Eastern shore trip this summer, loved it. Did Chrisfield, Onacock, Cape Charles & Smith (plus Solomons, St Leanords Creek and a couple days in Oxford)
A little further south in Cape Charles is Bay Creek Marina. Bay Creek Marina - Chesapeake Bay & Atlantic Boat Slips It's a fantastic marina, miles of teak decked floating docks, "Aqua" a great on-site restaurant, and a great Irish Pub in town. The channel is a bit tricky, especially at low tide, but it's a nice soft sand that I was able to plow through the shallow spots. (Smith Island was a different story )
Second Onacock, a cool little town with may dining options, just don't go on a Monday as we did as most are closed
This years plan is to do a Western Shore cruise with the Admiral down to the bottom of the bay. I'll be referring to this post as well as posting for more suggestions as we get closer.
