On this cloudy morning, Captain Jean Guy and Raymond left at 08:00 and motored all the way until arriving at their destination at 15:00. They anchored in front of Zahniser's Yachting Center in Back Creek. Solomons Island is located on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay at the mouth of the Patuxent River. The island is a mile and a half long with Back Creek on starboard side and the Patuxent River on port side, and the shops, pubs and restaurant are in the middle. In 1977, the state built the Thomas Johnson Bridge which linked all of southern Maryland by road for the first time. Tourism drives much of Solomons Island's economy now, and this place is also a popular vacation destination for the urban centers of Baltimore and Washington.
