After awakening to a glorious morning on the Onancock Creek and visiting the Farmers Market, we set sail for Crisfield.
We once again sailed by majestic homes that line the creek.
We sailed under perfect conditions for four hours heading north. We passed Tangier Island and then Smith Island, both on our port side. Not many boats were out, even though it is a Saturday, school holiday time and the weather is warm and sunny.
We arrived in Crisfield at about 2.00pm, to welcoming dock hands. Mark returned from the office with two pieces of the famous Smith Island cake – 10 layers interspersed with chocolate icing. (Each layer is only 1-2 millimetres, just in case you were wondering!)
People are so friendly here. One of the dock hands drove us to the grocery store, waited for us and then drove us back to the boat. Now that’s what I call service!
The temperature is again in the mid to high 30sC (90sF) and as this state marina has a swimming pool, we are off to cool down.
Such is Life!
