Day 33, May 2 Chesapeake City MD

2 05 2012

No idea why they call this place a city, it’s really a tiny village on the C and D Canal. It has the look and feel of a turn of the century place and we were glad to spend a day waiting for the weather to improve for our continued trek up the canal and across Delaware Bay. Hardly anyone was around as we toured the main street shops and then had some lunch. One home and gallery of an older man, Neil Snodgrass, was amazing. We stayed for quite awhile talking to him and petting his 4 cats that were making us feel welcome. All his art was of the area and the town; such an impressive collection that we bought a small picture to commemorate our trip We spent the rest of the afternoon studying our charts because the next leg of our journey could be challenging without being well prepared. It looks like our weather window will be perfect for the ocean run along the New Jersey shore in a couple days. A trawler from Newfoundland is anchored not far from us and will be travelling north with us as well—hope to meet them along the way. “Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.” Seneca “A ship in harbour is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” John A.
