Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Being among the "Deplorables", I think I'll anchor up a few feet from Dave and fire up my genset.

Stay safe out there,

I'm in Milwaukee until next Thursday morning. My wife is in Chicago caring for parents, and our daughter is home taking care of the puppy by herself, which is an exercise in sleep deprivation. My wife and I had planned to cruise next Thur night through July 3, but that would be another week of the daughter having to take the dog by herself, which will wear her out so much it will be difficult for her to keep up with her job. We're thinking of altering our cruising plans to bring the dog on the boat, just to give our daughter a break. I'd appreciate any guidance on anchorages with dog-accessible places. I had hoped to make it down to Solomons, but we're going to have to stay close to Rock Hall in case things don't work well with the dog on the boat.

We may hop over to Annapolis for a day or two, since Federal House is very dog friendly (complete with dog bowls at the outdoor tables). Looks like Davis's Pub in Eastport also ranks high for canines. We eat mostly on the boat, but would like to have some restaurant time once or twice also.

Other suggestions?

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Once I moved from anchor by the lighthouse to the anchorage by Zanheizers it was all calm here. Since it rained all day we stayed on the boat, which means we saved $$$$$$. Only been ashore once since Monday and that was quick stop at Point Lookout to walk and see the "fort" and stopped at the little park store and got a 12-pk of coke.

Controlling the cruiser budget is about controlling going ashore. If you don't go ashore for awhile you save up for a brewpub trip or 2.

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Is good you moved it was rough in the harbor area.

Understand what your saying about cruising , living on your boat budgeting money. You donít need to be a cruiser to have to do that. It sent exclusive to cruising In life we all have budgets

. Right now my wife and I are dinks ( double income no kids ) and have planned for our upcoming retirement . Me soon her in two years. We will see how I recover from Tuesdayís back operation. We are on a 10 day vacation which we budgeted for through the year. We allotted $2000.
For that it includes taking my wife to a couple of restaurants, some nice. It also is for docking at a few places so we can enjoy the pool. I certainly didnít want her eating her massacred steamed crabs on the boat with the flies and all the old Bay smell which would takes days to get rid of. Spring cove Marina tools everywhere. To get the crabs, to the restaurant and back, she was able to go to a couple of antique places. We have had a great 10 days and spent less than $1000 so far. We traditionally love to anchor out. Almost every weekend finds us anchoring out.
To stay in a marina is a treat though you gotta pick the right one.if you spend the money it should meet expectations.

This thread is Chesapeake Sailing. Most who post are not cruisers. Most are like us...weekend warriors who alsomau take a couple of weeks to cruise our beloved Chesapeake Bay. The country originally was settled up through this region. Those of us who sail here enjoy gunkholing anywhre which you can only find here . Thinking an occasional brew pup gives you the flavor of sailing here does not give an accurate picture.

Taking the time to visit Yorktown, Jamestown, Williamsburg, Solomonís, St Micheal and Annapolis areS are very significant in the history of colonial America as well as Civil War period. Seeing the Monitor in the museum in Hampton Roads a significant place in history, Yorktown where the final battle of the revolution was fought, Jamestown the first colony, Annapolis where all the slave trade came to as well as the Maryland Capitol, and St MicheLs.....very important colonial port. You can anchor inn all places. All have brew pubs. All have tremendous museums. All give a flavor of this area. Might explain why we all love to sail the Chesapeake.

Thread contains the travels of many of us. We specifically post ours so others may see and get ideas for themselves when they are looking for a place to anchor. Almost every weekend we anchor out during the year, as do others. Vacations are a mixture usually. If we visit an area for a few days we want to see more than where we can wŗlk to. The marinas takeus there.

Others have posted great places to visit while you are transiting through. Many including me mentioned St Micheals. A great place e to anchor and get off. You can visit from the Miles River side or my preferred San Domingo Creek off the Choptank and Broad Creeks,

We will be in a small Creek off of Broad Creek if you care to drop anchor and visit with us. We are just hanging out today , with a dinghy ride as I prepare for our surgery. Also putting the boa5 back together after the 10 days trip. Maybe we will see Rubber Ducky later. You have my contact info.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

You didnít even wave this morning as you went by me as I was pulling the anchor up

On way to St Michaels based on you guys and the guidebook. I canít read and remember every place in in the guidebook, plus Iíve found the guides lie and make ****holes sound worth a visit. So itís nice to hear recommendations

I didnít see you honestly or I would have. We waved to a few people. I did not see and names on boats

We are anchored in Grace Creek off Landenham Creek off Broad Creek on the Choptank if you care to join later.

You will like St Micheals
Two ways to St Micheals .

Choptank to BroadCreek to Edge Creek to Santo Domingo Creek. To meet itís the peaceful quiet anchorage. Dinghy Dock is 1/4 mile further. Walk 2 Blocks and your in St Micheals

Second way is Miles River. Most anchor in the river East side. Dinghy Dock next to museum.

Have fun

Are you saying across the river from the town harbor?

Just curious about this since we’ve always gone there on slow days when we could tuck in by Parrot Point, but may end up there next Saturday when the fireworks will make Parrot anchorage unsafe, and we’ll have to find a safer place.

FYI, the event next Saturday is the museum’s annual big band night, a gig that I played for 20 years before I had my sailboat. Always wanted to go by boat, but I left the band and it subsequently lost the booking.

Deplorables was referring to PWC's.

Sorry, I guessed I missed that part. I was thinking he was referring to Republicans.
