After being invited to join the "float" group, I decided to trailer from Gwynn's Island to Smith Point above Reedville. The alternatives were to trailer 5 hours or so over the bridge near Annapolis or head SE to the Norfolk area, cross the Bay Bridge/Tunnel and north (at least 5 hours for me). I decided to on Smith Point.

Smith Point is where the Potomac enters the Chesapeake and adjacent to the shipping channel that funnels up and down the Bay. It can be rough. I was fortunate to have good weather. The first day was spent driving, provisioning and rigging, taking a side trip to the marine railway in Reedville, and anchoring in the calm waters of the Little Wicomico. More sorting out of gear.. the first extended trip of the season... and last minute checks on waypoints before bed.
