June 18
This 17 mile long canal connects the north end of Chesapeake Bay to Delaware Bay. We chose Schaefer’s Marina at the west end, one of just a few marinas along the canal, to spend the night. Another interesting place. Nothing much here as marinas go, just a long dock to tie up to, but a nice restaurant on site and an outdoor bar playing great 50’s music. Woke at 5:30 the next morning to fog & light rain. Luckily, the fog lifted and we were on our way by 8:45; we had a long run ahead, planning to get through the C&D Canal and Delaware Bay to Cape May, NJ, today. This lighthouse is in Delaware Bay.
