Delivery Trip – Maryland to Delaware

Leg 2 of our delivery would be a shorter day, from Annapolis to Chesapeake City onto Chesapeake-Delaware Canal.

Before we left we were treated to another gorgeous sunrise on Lake Ogleton.
Can’t see them, but they were up there on the deck. By Quigley’s!
One of my favorite photos of the trip. This Kadey Krogen 39 is one sweet-looking boat.

Not as nice as yesterday, but pretty good. Calm waters is a very good thing.
The Chesapeake Bay Bridge is always a landmark for us. The Mariner Orient was just south of the bridge at Kent Island when we acquired her.

of course we saw and dodged crab pots. It wouldn’t be the Chesapeake Bay without that.
There were several bird conventions that day. Meetings were held on both red and green markers.
A little outside time for me. Hi Captain Al!
WOW. It might not be a sunny day, but it sure doesn’t get calmer than this,

We arrived in Chesapeake City by mid-afternoon, a relatively short 7-hour day. Chesapeake City has a free town dock but there was only a smallish stretch open. Would 39+ feet fit there?? The opening was between a very small power boat (as in a runabout) and the tour boat. The guy in the runabout helped us with the lines and Al parallel parked the Krogen into the tight spot.

Snug as a bug in a rug.

Without planning ahead of time, Al’s daughter, Alicia, and her family live 20 minutes away and came to visit us, see the new boat, and have dinner. Every time we have cruised north or south, we stop at Chesapeake City so that they can visit. This would make the fifth time, continuing the tradition.

A little time on the bow.
Then off to dinner at the Chesapeake inn on the dock.
The kids were fascinated by the Halloween blow up decorations on the docks and boats. Who can blame them?

I may have to retract what I said about this being just a delivery trip with no fun time. It’s been great so far, and we even saw friends and family!
