The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels Md. is the home of the Chesapeake Bay Small Boat Festival over the first weekend of October each year. A strong north-west wind this year along with a high tide this year caused an extreamly high tide. but that didn’t stop the festival, just disrupted a few businesses. One popular restaurant had over a foot of water at the entrance, probably keeping many would be partons away.
At a B&B nearby the patio saw very few enjoying the outdoor seating.
Water is water! Paddlers and sailors don't mind high water.
Saturday morning and the fishing fleet is snug in the harbor.
