I would add to it on the way to going to Chestertown on the Chester River stopping at Cackaway Island on Langford creek for the bald eagles...across from langford on the Chester is Corsica River where about 3 miles up is a cove you cabn dinghy ashore and walk the old Russian retreat embassy ( where they intercepted all the messages from NSA in the 60's)
Also Havre de Grace is a very neat quaint town off to the side of the bay where the Susqehanna River enter the Bay at its northernmost part.

I'd move #10 further up the list in terms of places that are geographically unique. A small island focused on crabbing, it has a very different flavor. The link below is to a trip report. Personally, I find Smith Island less interesting.

It is the sort of place where you need to have time to speak with the workmen; otherwise, you can easily miss understanding why they stay on the island... those that do.

Colonial Beach is about halfway up to DC. A long day from Fishing Bay.
And there's the Choptank River, the setting for Michner's Chesapeake.

|CaptainForce||Though I've stopped at a few locations up the Potomac like St. Clements and Cobb Islands, I don't have a good local knowledge of the Potomac up from Breton Bay. Others might have information about good stops on the way to DC. Take care and joy, Aythya crew|
