A couple of hours north of the Rappahannock you will find Indian Creek, home to the Indian Creek Yacht and Country Club as well as multiple fine, deep anchorages. We took on diesel at the Chesapeake Boat Basin, where I would not want to fuel up in strong winds unless you can turn on a dime.
We ignored the warnings about less than perfect holding at Pitman Cove and set the hook for the evening, sharing the spot with one other boat. It was hot! While fueling up I noticed an abundance of nettles here, which the dockhand promised would be gone within a few weeks. No swimming today.
Instead, we dinked around looking at houses and wildlife, with the ospreys squawking at each daymarker as we peaked at their new arrivals.
