Friday, September 12, 2008 "Island Hopper" departed the dock at 8:30 AM, arriving in Annapolis, MD at 10:45 AM. It was another good day for cruising. Some mild rain started after we docked. Again, Jenny and Debbie went shopping, while Kevin and Dan did a walking tour of the Naval Academy. They ate dinner at the Annapolis Yacht Club. (http://www.annapolisyc.com/) Annapolis is a beautiful and quaint town around the waterfront. Saturday, September 13, 2008 "Island Hopper" departed the dock at 10:00 AM and docked at St. Michaels Harbour Marina in Saint Michaels, MD. Jenny and Debbie took the shuttle and walked around the small town of Saint Michaels. It is filled with specialty stores and boutiques. Kevin and Dan rode bicycles to the Saint Michaels Museum. (http://www.saintmichaelsmuseum.com/) The crew met at 4:30 PM to do a wine tasting at Saint Michaels Winery. (www.st-michaels-winery.com) After tasting 8 - 10 wines they happily purchased wine for tomorrow night's happy hour. They had a fabulous meal at Bistro St. Michaels. (www.bistrostmichaels.com)

"Island Hopper's" Crew in the dinghy
The yacht "Diamond Lady"Around 10:00 AM Jenny and Debbie hopped on the bikes and rode into town for some last minute shopping. After riding the bikes back to "Island Hopper", the crew jumped into the dinghy for a harbor cruise. After a short cruise they went to the Crab Claw for lunch. Jenny received a hands-on crab eating demonstration from the table behind us. After lunch it was back to marina for a refreshing swim. Captain Kevin said the water was too cold, so he needed more time than the rest of the crew to take a plunge into the water. "Island Hopper" arrived back to the home port, Haven Harbour in Rock Hall, MD. around 5:30 PM. The crew was ready for happy hour and then dinner at Waterman's Crab House. http://www.watermanscrabhouse.com/) The Crockers leave tomorrow morning to head home to Cincinnati, Ohio. We had a great time playing in the Chesapeake!!!!!
