Detour to Crisfield

On our way up the Chesapeake Bay, we made a detour to visit friends, Chris and Tracy, in Crisfield, MD on the Eastern Shore.

Chris and Tracy have leased waterfront property in the heart of Crisfield where they plan to open a much needed boat rental business.  While we were visiting, they let us use their private dock.

Crisfield comes alive Thursday through Sunday, then goes back to sleep Monday through Wednesday.

Chris and Tracy plan on renovating this piece of property and being open Thursday through Sunday during the summer tourist season.  Winters they will spend cruising south.

Crisfield has a great anchorage that attracts cruisers, but unless you spend some time there exploring with a small boat, you will not see all that the area has to offer (see: http://www.dnr.state.md.us/publiclands/eastern/janesisland.asp ).   Of course the locals know all of the great spots.

Thanks Chris and Tracy, we had a great time!
