Today was a long run for Cally. She really is a trooper and handling each day and whatever we throw at her well, so far. Today was a long run for us, too. FLYS. I have never had so many flies hang out on a boat as it cruised up the Chesapeake Bay. I think they were so tried by the time they found us they just hung out. It was awful, with them biting us and really annoying Miss Cally.
|This is how I like the Chesapeake Bay to be when crossing the mouth to the Potomac|
That area can get quite snotty. Been there, done that.
|See the purple box on the chart?|
That is the designated area large ships navigate to
in order to pick up the Pilots off the Pilot boats
|Bay Pilot Boat ... taking a pilot out to a large ship to bring her up the Bay and probably to Baltimore for off loading|
|Our view for two days|
|This is the office for the Marina. That 560 SEL Mercedes you see...|
is the COURTESY CAR we can use to go to town for supplies!
I kept trying to come up with something I needed to go get just to use it, but couldn't.
Day 10 Saturday, April 29, 2017 - - 0 miles, 0 hours traveled ... Calvert Marina, Solomons, MD
|Lab Partners at the floating pier for transients ... that's what we are called|
when you only stay a short time at a marina
|R/V Bay Hydro II|
a research vessel across the pier from us. Big power cat.
|I'm pretty sure I would like MARY ELIZABETH|
how nice of them to name her after me
|Through the covered slips, across the creek and above the tree line|
you can see the bridge coming into Solomons the from south
|Calvert Cliffs area ... can you see the house by the cliff edge?|
Further north, there were homes that had to be razed once the cliff erosion compromised the foundations/structures
|A Liquid Petroleum (LP) off loading facility on the Chesapeake Bay|
|On shore tanks to store the off loaded LNG|
