Unfortunately, it is time to head in the direction of our home port (Solomons). We need an extra day at the marina to do chores before we head back to home and work.
Once again the wind was light while we sailed down and across the Bay to the Patuxent River. Since it was a special day for us we did not want to spend the night in the marina so we anchored in the "stomach" of Mill Creek.
Mill Creek is a very protected and reasonably quiet creek, however, it is surrounded by wall to wall homes. Interestingly, the south shore is populated with older and smaller more modest homes while the northern shore is populated with much larger and newer mansions. Many of the bushes and trees on shore were in full flower and their fragrances were blown across the water to us.
