Granary Creek is one of our 5 all time favorite anchorages. Can fit maybe 5 boats end to end anchored. Depts are 6-6.5 ft. Very narrow entrance to a tree line little creek. Lots of Bald Eagles and red tailed hawks circling the boat late afternoon.

At dusk (now) the sounds of many different species of birds sounding off.

Granary is the next creek down from Dividing Creek.
It's one of our favorites too. Slightly less picturesque than Dividing Creek, but usually less crowded. Very easy to get ashore there to go to Wye Island. We usually go ashore and walk the trails when we're down that way.
