Labor Day Weekend - Part 1

We managed to fit two destinations into our Labor Day travels. The first stop was a friend's shore house off Seneca Creek in Middle River. We planned to take a slow cruise over but the wind and waves were making the trip tough on the cats. I spent most of the trip cleaning up after them and really wish I could teach them to watch the horizon so they would feel better. At least this guy was having fun:
After passing behind Hart-Miller Island we set our course towards an easy landmark. I like to call it the candy striper power plant.
The dock at our friend's house is just the right size for us and it's good that we draw only 3 1/2 feet of water since the creek is pretty shallow.
It's the house on the right.
The views are a bit different from our normal urban landscape.

We joke that the amenities at this "marina" are lacking -- no pool -- but the "restaurant" is great. The crabs from Salty Dog's were meaty and delicious. I hear that you should call early because they are a popular crab house and sell out of the larger crabs.
After a quiet evening we set off for Tolchester Marina in the morning. More on that in the next post...
