Notice of Cruise – Lankford Creek/Rock Hall Cruise –
June 18-19, 2016
John and Ginger Shea
General Description: Lankford Bay Marina is on Davis Creek, just west of where it meets Langford Creek, off the Chester River and about 5 miles over land east of Rock Hall. As you approach from Galesville, you will see Eastern Neck Island at the mouth of the Chester River, and just north of the Bay Bridge opposite Kent Island is a national wildlife refuge. There is shuttle-bus service that takes passengers from the Marina to restaurants in Rock Hall. We plan to go to one of these restaurants- where we have had fine dinners in past years.
We have made 8 early reservations, but the reservations must be confirmed with a credit card at least two weeks before the visit, or they may not be honored. Call 410-778-1414 as soon as possible to make your arrangements. The Marina charges $2.00 per foot per night for boats plus $8 for 30 amp power, but for that you get free wireless Internet, use of a nice swimming pool, free loan of bicycles, and free pump-outs in addition to more normal services. For those who do not want to stay at the marina, there are reportedly good anchorage locations near-by, up Davis Creek from the marina, and off the eastern shore of Cacaway Island (separating the east and west branches of Langford Creek. There is reportedly deep water (6 to 9 feet) as close as 25 yards from the eastern shore of Cacaway
