In Oxford we saw the oldest ferry in continuous operation in the U.S. It carries but three or four cars per trip across the Tred Avon River. Some accounts hold that it has run from 1760, others say a later date, but either way is quite historic.
Lisa and JJ rode bicycles about 10 miles to Easton to buy groceries for the dinner they prepared.
Our next stop is St. Michael's, Maryland, which on the BMW scale is an "8" -- very yuppie. We spent quite some time at the Chesapeake Maritime Museum, one of the best we've ever seen. The next several photos were taken at the museum. The first is one of the restored Chesapeake Bay fishing boats.
Another of the restored boats.
Another view of the same boat taken a restored light house which was moved to the site.
This is another view from the lighthouse of yet another restored sailing ship.
At dusk, we motored by dinghy to the Inn at Perry Cabin for a truly wonderful dinner in a restaurant owned (and decorated) by the Laura Ashley family. JJ took this picture.
It was a beautiful evening, and we passed the famouous Crab Shack capturing it in the beautiful dusk sky.
Lisa and JJ paused on the lawn to enjoy the sunset.
Dinner was as tasty at the decor was beautiful. It was a memorable evening. Motoring home in the dark and the stillness was a perfect end.
Note the Interlude at the dock in St. Michaels. Inspite of the appearance, we were the third largest boat in our marina.
