At anchor
Bohemia River, MD

We decided not to stay in Annapolis so we left the mooring at 0655 and cruised another 50 miles to the Bohemia River.  We passed under the Bay Bridge at 0750, a familiar landmark for us.  At the north end of the Bay we entered the Elk River and passed the Turkey Point Lighthouse, another favorite.

We soon entered the Bohemia and cautiously made our way up the river. It is shallow and we were only a foot above low tide.  We anchored securely at 1:30 and will stay here two nights.  There are lots of sailboats and smaller boats that enjoy this scenic river.

After we arrived, we called our granddaughter, Ashley to wish her a Happy 13th Birthday!  We cooked dinner on the grill and had a quiet evening.  We have some chores to take care of tomorrow and will hopefully get the dinghy out for a ride.
