Final peaceful night on Severn River

Elmington Estate was built in 1620 and looks pretty impressive on the North River today as we sailed by. 


It is hard to believe that 200 years ago, the British Navy had more than 100 ships in the Chesapeake Bay. Britain was still not too happy with our Declaration of Independence. Warships blockaded the Bay in February 1813 and life was tense for many months. The Brits even set up a temporary base on now tranquil Tangier Island.

The only protests in the Severn River tonight are from a few local and vocal dogs across the water. 

Apostles on that roof?
There is one very unique home as you sail up the Severn. Twelve statues "adorn" its roof. We can never get close enough in the shallow water to see if they are the apostles. Perhaps the owner has a Vatican fixation? See any resemblance?
