Our final route for this leg of our adventure: Oxford, MD to Bear, DE (Summit North Marina-our home).
As I write this, we are still cruising up the Chesapeake Bay to the Elk River and the C&D Canal. Expect to arrive Summit North Marina at 1100. We departed Tolchester at 0600 to catch favorable currents. Tolchester was a kinda nice surprise. The docks and facilities are needing some repair, but they are working on that. A lot of slips are covered and last years heavy snows collapased a couple of them. (Hence, our reasons for going SOUTH in the winter.) But, there is a nice pool, restaurant, tiki bar (w/food) by the beach, a beach with lots of dry drift wood for bonfires, some maintenance facilities and nice people. (VERY PROTECTED MARINA) We met a new Defever couple, Steve and Anna Keiser aboard their new-to-them 49 Motor Yacht, "Journey". (That's the 44+5 for we older Defever members). Nice 2006 model. They joined us for cocktails aboard Tide Hiker and we got acquainted. Very nice Philadelphians--hope we run into them again on the water.
IMPORTANT: WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO UPLOAD PICTURES BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT HAD GOOD CONNECTIONS. WE WILL BE UPLOADING ALL THE PICTURES FROM OUR MOST RECENT CRUISES SOON. WE'LL LET YOU KNOW WHEN AND IF INTERESTED, YOU CAN GO BACK TO THOSE SECTIONS AND SEE THEM. Caio, for now.
