There are lots of retreats for DC movers and shakers along the Eastern Shore between Wye and Cambridge that make for good general interest in an article.

Wye Island conference facilities get used by diplomatic and other international meetings. Long history of very interesting people whisked in and out of there.

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
You're not talking about the red Georgian mansion at the mouth of the Corsica, right? I didn't know you could come ashore there and walk around.

jjablonowski On the way in to Baltimore's Inner Harbor, I'd add the Francis Scott Key Buoy, which marks the spot where the poem that became our national anthem was written.

chef2sail Great List

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.

pdqaltair Of course.

It's tough making a short list, you know.

I agree that these islands are unique and special, but if you're talking about a ranking on the list that I submitted, please note that they are just listed clockwise around the Bay and not in a ranking. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

pdqaltair 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.

Sail Delmarva: Trip Report - 2010 Delmarva Circumnavigation

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.

PBzeer 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
