September 3, 2013 Canoe Neck to Mattawoman Creek

An early start to the day...seas were smooth as we left anchorage, but then it was windy most of the day - drove from the helm as a result.


Passed this point on St. Clements Island...this is where New World settlers first "planted" their feet on what was to become Maryland soil.  The beautiful cross 'marks the spot' of the first landing.

A waterman boat motoring for crab pots.  No, we haven't had any Maryland crab cakes yet, but are on a quest to find the best!

A tough job, but somebody has to do it...Captain Ron steers the ship with his 'remote control'.

Almost looks like the Lambton (Ontario) Power Plant, but with stripes...doesn't it?  But views from the great and historical Potomac.

Almost looks like the Blue Water Bridge too...doesn't it?  But alas, it's the Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge over the Potomac (Highway 301).  What a "nice" bridge!




We are beginning to see some of the beautiful homes along the way...can't wait to see Mt. Vernon from the water.


Our many THANKS go out to sailboat "Breezin" who we followed most of the way today - Breezin's Captain gave us wonderful and helpful information for tonight's anchorage in Mattawoman Creek.  We greatly appreciated his advice - it was 'right on'!



Interesting marker architecture...




Huge satellite dishes!

Ron tried to catch us more perch for dinner tonight, but the fish didn't cooperate.

Sunset at anchorage and no need for air conditioning tonight!
