St Michaels, MD to Solomons Island, MD

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. 

There were sports fishermans along the way.
Heading in Back Creek, you can see the Thomas Johnson Bridge in the rear.
In a lot of marinas, it's common to see boats docked between two peers.

We saw a lot of places where they have storage like this to store powerboats.
The captain is always attracted by catamarans.
Nice property along the Back Creek.
