You have a few days to take that back or to make it sound better! Or I’ll hunt your boat down and go all pirate bird poop on it

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

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Hunt me down, but just keep in mind that I'm a really old fart and old farts pack heat wherever they go cause we're old. Guess I won't change the post/

See ya when you get up this way, Don - the bar is fully stocked.

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.

https://www.bringfido.com/restaurant...napolis_md_us/

Other suggestions?
Here are a couple alternatives. You already have been to Annapolis and it’s starts getting nuts about now. If you want a mooring come early. (11 am).

We see people leave dinghy sited to moorings when the go out sailing for the day

St Micheals Harbor is crazy nuts on fireworks days. Yes people anchor off Parrot Point pretty deep into the river. The problem with the harbor is when the fireworks end .....the PB rev up and fly out of there for an hour. Remember any restaurant the weekend of the 4 will have a 2 hour wait.

Here’s a couple of close alternative ideas....they are free ....so that’s what their worth😀🌪

One would be to do the St Micheals thing on the Miles. Spend a couple days on the Wye River.... Shaw Bay...Granary Creek both have places you can let the doggie off .

Two...this one is better I think. Go to the Choptank. Anchor in San Domingo Creek. Take Fido to the fireworks with you. Dinghy are is at a public park.very pretty anchorage area and you won’t get the yahoos on the Miles River. Good restaurants in St Micheals not on the water to. T37chef and I both like Ava’s for what it’s worth. Next day do to Tred Avon and Oxford. Take Fido to walk the town. Great ice cream shop there. Next day go to La Trappe Creek or take a slip in the municipal Marinia in Cambridge.
Take Fido off the boat there too. Some restaurants around. There are pretty anchorages like Dunn Cove, Boby Owl Cove if you want solitude.

Personally I’d avoid the crowds in Annapolis. Visit there when you have short time and when the crowds are gone in the fall.

Lastly if you are that worried that the dog won’t adjustand he’s a healthy dog, put him in a kennel or vet kennel for a few days. My dog when alive was a huge German Shorthaired Pointer ( Thor) . We trained him to be on the boat, however I wouldn’t take him for a week. Not fair to him....or to us. I wouldn’t let the tail wag the dog . He went to a kind kennel we got him used to and would run him every day. We were much happier and enjoyed our time. So did he...we asked him..🙀🙀🙀

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Last day of vacation

We spent last night anchored in Grace Creek off of Lendenham Creek, Broad Creek off the Choptank River. Very quiet, we were the only boa there. No phone signal at all. Nice dinghy ride, weather warm, but with fans and a nice cool shower no problem sleeping.

Dinner was a NY strip with fresh farm tomatoe salad. Watermelon-Peach smoothies for dessert and the last pieces of Kim’s Key Lime Pie.

Over all a tame vacation...sailed 6 of the 10 days. Extra day in port at Deltaville Dozier Regatta Marina and Solomon’s at Spring Cove Marina.
No crazy sailing weather tp put pressure on my back. Thunderstorms late in 5he afternoons almost every day were possible, but hey it’s the Chesapeake.

Great 10 days for my wife and I to be together. Her skills are great and when we sail many days in a row you can see how see gets into a routine. Spent some time with friend twice along the way.

All in all helped my mind as I head into the back surgery on Tuesday.
