Welcome to The Second Sojourn Sail Trip

October 2002: Chesapeake Bay
We took a few days to recover from our offshore sailing past
New Jersey in Delaware City at the head of Delaware Bay. Then we
sailed thru the D and C canal to the Chesapeake. From there Dave
drove to the Annapolis Boat Show with Ben Allen. Then we all
drove to Baltimore to meet Dani and Don Wood

A lovely anchorage off the Magothy River north of Annapolis and
right around the bend from our friends the Allen's
A nice visit with Ken, Carol and Ben Allen
In downtown Annapolis, the houses are rainbow colors and the
streets emanate from the old State House like the spokes of a

After promising the Allens a return visit in the spring, we headed
down the bay, under the Bay Bridge to St Michaels
This famous "cottage-style" lighthouse at St. Michaels Maritime
Museum has been beautifully restored.

Crabs and beer! Yum!
Skip jacks were the original boats used for oystering in the
The local St. Michael's fishing fleet. The watermen's boats are
longer and flatter than those of lobstermen in New England.
Then down the Bay again to Solomons Island, MD
Have a few sailboats! Solomons is a huge sailing center. We
finally started to see other cruisers.
In Crisfield, MD, we had some extra time, so Dave made the
curtains for the boat.
Crisfield is a big fishing town.
Tangier Island MD is another fishing village. These crab shacks
are built on pilings on the water that lines the channel.
Tangier is an island on the eastern coast of the Chesapeake Bay,
Here families use golf carts instead of cars and still speak with
an Elizabethan accent added to the Virginia drawl.
The town at Tangier Island is built around a big salt marsh
The watermens' crab shacks that line the channel are built right
on the water
