Late in the day, we decided to explore the Little Choptank some more, so we pulled up the anchor and motored up to Phillips Creek. We started up into Beckwith Creek and encouraged by a large ocean-going ketch moored at its headwaters, cautiously entered the creek. We anchored in 8.5 feet of water. It's quite lovely here.
We spent most of the day anchored on Hudson Creek on the Little Choptank reading. When we took Morgaine out for a sail we found a frog living in her sail! Ugh! I flicked him in the water and he started swimming. I hope he made it to shore!

Had a great sail today up to Hudson Creek on the Little Choptank River. We had to start the engine in the middle of the day when we were becalmed, but then we were able to sail again up the Little Choptank. We're anchored in a pretty cove with a bald eagle hanging out in a tree on shore.

Daniel and I started our cruise Saturday morning. This is the first evening I have 3G cell phone reception. On Saturday we sailed from Annapolis to Baby Owl Cove on Leadenham Creek on Broad Creek off the Choptank. It was a tiring upwind sail, so we stayed in that anchorage until this morning. Today we went to the fuel dock in Oxford for diesel, water, and ice. Then we sailed to a lovely anchorage on La Trappe Creek. So far the weather has been pretty good!
