Cauldrons on the Chesapeake: A Quiet Anchorage

With only a few days left on our honeymoon, we decided to take the long leg back up toward Baltimore, where we knew we could wrap up our trip.  It was a gorgeous day for a big sail!  A little chilly, but sunny and blue - the best kind of day.

Unbelievably blue.

Another happy sailboat out for an adventure.

We decided to stop for the day just inside the mouth of the Patapsco River, in a creek called Bodkin Creek.  We found a nice quiet spot to anchor, and relaxed in the cockpit, enjoying the late afternoon weather.

What a view!

Expanding skies as the day wears away.

Bosley is tuckered out. 
For one of our last meals on the boat, we roasted some of those tasty fresh oysters we bought on Tilghman Island.  Dee-licious!

Mmm, oysters!

Oyster feast!

Next stop, Baltimore or bust!
