We are currenly anchored at Solomons. It's a friendly town with stores within dinghy/walking distance (very important in my opinion!). Woodburns grocery is a nice meeting place for liveaboards (they gather daily at around 8AM). I'm sure there have to be some waitressing jobs somewhere there. Back Creek in Annapolis
is also a nice anchorage. A big grocery store/plaza is a 20 minute walk from there.
All I know is right now it's hotter than the blazes here and not getting any better!
We anchored in DC in the Washington
Channel. It's about 20' deep and we rode
out a hellish storm one night and I have no idea how we didn't drag! The Capital Yacht Club will give you full priveleges and a spot to dock
for $15.00/day (you don't have to go there everyday though! this is only when you need it. They also host spaghetti dinners, Friday night get togethers etc... Ice is $1.00/bag and laundry
is $1.00 per wash and dry. Super nice place and people!
