We left the Susquehanna River and headed to Fairlees Creek for a three day anchorage due to weather it is very protected there and the winds are to blow 20-25knts.This will give us a chance to work with Ms. Scarlett on the leash and dinghy.We can also swim and Roger can clean the bottom of "BLUE DOLPHIN".We walked the island and found several pieces of SEAGLASS which is only in the Bahamas and the Chesapeake we found several really good pieces.There was a "RAFT UP" of approx.50 boats in a circle it was a Yacht club and they had games and prizes it was really cool.Ms scarlett did very well on the raft ,leash and swimming she is AMAZING!!!!After three great days we head to Rockhall to Watermans Crab House. If you eat at the reataurant or order for delivery on the boat your night at the dock is FREE!!!We decided to order and eat on the boat it was such a great day we sat the table with linen and table ware and we were ready to enjoy a great meal on the water.It was GREAT!!!We were also able to get marine supplies at the Rockhall Marine Railway (zincs) at an extremely discounted price and we were also able to re-provision AND ICE CREAM at the 1900's ice cream shop complete with soda fountain and stools.Rock Hall is a little hamlet  on the Eastern Shore with alot to offer.It was the transit point for dignitaries such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson when they traveled to Philadelphia via sailing ferriies from Annapolis.Each morning you see the workboats go out into the bay to retrieve crabs,rockfish,clams and oysters they return at sunset with their boats full of bounty and the restaurants and locals are their to buy the catch.Watermans Crab house has the best selection of seafood on the Chesapeake---garlic crabs are fantastic!!!!!We enjoy our stay in Rock hall and proceed to Kent Narrows for fuel,water and ice.They have a very strick DOG WALK POLICY OUTSIDE the gate so Mr.dach and Ms scarlett and I head out for our walk while Capt Roger fuels the boat and fills the water tanks.We have a great walk and we get to the gate and I dont know the code to get in so I holler to Roger but he doesnt hear me so I yell louder finally the dockmaster yells me the code. Boy I must be getting old I cant even remember three numbers for that short of time.Up the scenic Chester River to the Corsica River we find a secluded great anchorage complete with a river rope swing and small sandy beach.We passed an old wooden sail boat and the mansion of the builder of the EMPIRE STATE BUILDING.We drop the hook and have a great day swimming with the doxies and swinging on the rope swing.Ms scarlett finds a falllen tree and tries her skills as an acrobat and does very well.She is doing good off leash.We get up early and move across river to CACAWAY ISLAND to view fireworks 360  degrees .HOPE EVERYONE HAS A HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!!!
