We made a short trip from Annapolis and arrived in Rock Hall, MD around 2PM on May 26th from Annapolis.
We docked at Waterman’s Crab House on their dock. There was no water or power, but for $44/night, we were fine!
After cleaning up the boat, we took a walk around Rock Hall. it was about a mile from the marina to the other side of Rock Hall where there was a tiny waterman’s museum — which was closed, so we could only look inside the windows. There were a couple of historical markers we saw during our walk around in Rock Hall — besides this, there wasn’t much to see. We re-provisioned a few items and headed back to Waterman’s Crab House for dinner, drinks and called it an early night when the rain came.
The following day, Thursday May 27th, we headed north (38 miles) up the bay and up the Sassafras River to Skipjack Marina in Georgetown where we arrived round noon. After fueling up (diesel was $2.78/gal) and a pump out, we headed off to check out the resort amenities.
It was a warm day — upper 70’s — to enjoy some time at the pool and plan out our next few days. It was a huge pool that we pretty much had to ourselves — and great views of the Sassafras River.
It looked like the next couple days were going to be rainy and cool, so we decided to extend our stay in the Sassafras for 2 more days — waiting for a good weather window as we continue our trip on to Cape May New Jersey and running outside on the ocean around the New Jersey coast to New York Harbor. We woke up Friday morning to 50 degree weather and overcast so did some work on the boat that day and took a walk to lunch — saw a couple historic markers on our way.
Saturday was another rainy, cold day — we awoke to 48 degrees. Pretty much stayed in on the boat this day, but ventured out to go to Saturday night church. It was 2 miles to church and good thing we brought umbrellas, as it was quite a wet walk. St Dennis Church was a historic stone structure.
On the walk back to the boat, we were able to stop at historic Kitty Knight House restaurant for crab nachos, dinner and brownie with mint chocolate chip ice cream. We were wet from our knees down by the time we got back to the boat — what an adventure!
