Back at the Canoe Neck Creek area for anchorage for the night. We think it's beautiful and serene here.
We are traveling up the St. Mary's River, to St. Mary's, MD. We'll be anchoring in Horseshoe Bend for a couple of nights.
We took the dinghy to St. Mary's College sailing center and then got off for a short walk to the campus. The College is a public honors college - a liberal arts school - one of the tops in the nation. The campus was very nice with many colonial touches.
The Ark and the Dove were two ships that first landed colonists in Maryland. A replica of the Dove is docked at the foot of the hill of the historic village.
The Episcopal church's cemetery overlooking the water...yes, that's Spirit Journey way in the distance.
This is the replica of The Dove. It is AMAZING to us the stamina, dedication and determination early colonists had to travel 90+ days enroute to the new land on these sizes and types of ships.
