Are you telling me that those bloody Brits stole the names from the US ? The Bustards. Nothing sacred in this world Mark, nothing sacred at all.

Gladrags1 Ok, town creek, not back creek (my bad...). Oxford is a favorite destination since we don't want the party town atmosphere. Cutts and Case is a neat tour if still operating. Lat 38 is a great restaurant and the Robert Morris does a nice breakfast. Hinkley Yard has the tightest and quirkiest fairways that lend itself to a Hinkley Yacht's joystick control. People were pleasant but, like I said, their whole purpose is the feeding and servicing of the great Hinkley yacht-beast.

chef2sail We also have done Plaindealing Creek....pretty place and short dingy ride over to town.

5 years ago we spent 3 days marooned in Oxford though waiting for the hurricane/ tropical storm ( I think is was Felix to pass through). That marina has an interesting fairway to the slips ( non existant) talk about a tight fit.

wingNwing We've anchored in Plaindealing - pretty, quiet (in late Sept/early Oct) and protected, 8-9 feet deep mid-channel a good ways back in - we dinghied across to town so don't know about water taxi.

Latitude 38 is a good restaurant that's an easy walk or call them and they will pick you up.

Back Creek?? Don't know of any "Back Creek" near Oxford. Ferry wasn't running last week when I was there...

Schedule of the Oxford Ferry

..probably running now..

FYI..Oxford isn't a party town and watch your speed if your driving there..I understand they have 'Blue light' specials at Lat. 38 when ever the local gendarme 'lights up' in front of the restaurant with an unsuspecting tourist
