Langford Creek on the Chester River
Since leaving Zahnisers, we have been spending time putting hours on the engine in order to have Mooch get its 50 hour checkup there. We went back to Deltaville to see if we could not fine tune our new Frigoboat refrigerator/freezer, the latter of which runs full speed 24/7. Only time will tell. We anchored out in Mill Creek, dinking around to see the creek and admiring our property from the Southern shore. From there we went to Galesville, where we anchored, and then met up with Phase II at Langford Creek on Chester River. We were here a few years ago, and this time rafted up with Vickie and Len by Cacaway Island. As usual, loads of laughs, and we inaugurated the Tillman's new Honda generator, which I covet.
The Chester River is a winding waterway which has always been a pain in the neck for us to get into, although we did have a nice sail part of the way. It is so hard to imagine that Baltimore is only a day's sail away, with its hustle and bustle. The Chester is farmland and marshes, with nature sounds all around.
