Day Ten-Cape May Canal to Delaware Bay, north to C & D Canal

We awoke to a fabulous day after a much needed good night's sleep for both of us. Great gunk hole.
South Jersey Marina is on a favorite list.

Calm waters clear skies
Once again, we were very lucky with the weather and Delaware Bay, for a long (60NM?) northern run against the current, was flat calm.  Another very shallow bay, shoaling to 5 feet (or less) in spots.

Delaware Bay doesn't seem to offer much in the way of "attractions" although I am sure there are many.

Against the current, again, we went through the 14 mile Chesapeake & Delaware Canal that cuts west to the top of the Chesapeake Bay,  Elk River, actually.

 (Question: "If  Pennsylvania  married New York, what would Delaware?  Her New Jersey?  Idaho. Alaska.")

A pretty long day covering 73.2 nm in 7.3 hrs.

Just outside the Canal, to the east, is a small river called Bohemia.  We found this peaceful, idyllic place called Bohemia Bay Yacht Harbour.  Sooooo quiet which is much welcomed.  Unbelievably peaceful.  Dinner aboard tonight listening to John Prine.
