Cruise Away about any of it, but somehow you’ve become hooked on cruising. The Boating Life The rivers of Maryland’s Eastern Shore are made for overnight cruising. The most remote coves and crannies are perfect anchorages for all sorts of pleasure boaters ~ solo old salts, romantic couples, f leets of friends, and young families with children ~ all cruising on vessels of every size and persuasion. For the crew with a dose of wanderlust, the boat is like a f loating RV, a place to lay your head at night as you voyage from creek to creek. Sleeping on a boat really is a lot like camping, but with water views all around. Cruising offers an intense form

of togetherness for family and friends. My own family has cruised for more than thirty years to anchorages and marinas all over the Chesapeake Bay. Every trip brings unexpected adventures and plenty of quality family time. The Chesapeake’s Many Rivers No question, the human soul needs to be outdoors and in touch with nature. You can get your earthly fix anywhere you choose ~ on a mountain, on a beach, in a meadow, in a city park, or at home in your garden. But if you’ve got the time and the nautical knowhow, you’ll want to be on a boat exploring the Chesapeake. The Bay’s 3,000-plus miles of shoreline, fifty or so rivers, and hundreds of tidal creeks offer a lifetime of possibilities for a cruiser.
