Chesapeake Bay

Cambridge, MD

Cambridge was a little bit of a disappointment. We are finding the cruising guide we use tends to be overly upbeat when describing places to visit. So, perhaps it wasn’t the town’s fault. Maybe it was because we had high expectations. We should learn to set lower expectations. This way, when we land we are […]

Oxford, MD

I think the people who purchased homes in Oxford must have to pass a gardening test as a prerequisite. This is a sleepy little river town on the Tred Avon river. If by the pictures you think the town is small, you’re right. It took us little less than a day to walk the entire […]

Ten layer Smith Island cakes originate from Smith Island Maryland and were baked for the men who spent several days on crab boats in […]

We are extremely excited with the offerings of the bay particularly the picturesque small towns, bay front cities and isolated tree lined coves for which the Chesapeake is renowned. We tried to time our entrance into the bay at dawn. But […]
