Definitely let us know how the trip goes, as I will be interested to help us plan our trip in the future.
Well it was fantastic. The scenery up and down the river was so UNSPOILED. Beautiful homes and farms line both sides, no development, not a single condo or factory. It was breathtaking. I'm sure it will be even better in September when not so hot. Don't let the season end without going.
The marina (Chestertown Marina) was small but had plenty of room. We've found that everywhere this summer, the economy is killing the marina business. There is a restaurant that over looks the marina, we didn't try it but it seemed popular. The wharf along the front of the restaurant is roped off because it is collapsing into the marina. The slips were good tho' and it is only a block to downtown which was so pretty. We ate at the Imperial Hotel and it was so good... atmosphere, service and food. The have a heirloom tomato salad topped with warm brie in phylo... yummm.
It was a full moon and the high tides were huge, covering the dock.
