St. Leonard Creek beckoned

We enjoyed this pretty creek five years ago, so it called to us again as 20+ knot north winds remain on the Bay. 

High wooded banks greet and well hidden homes greeted us for the majority of this creek as we looked for a sheltered anchorage. 


Then voila, the tiki tacky Vera's White Sand Restaurant and annual bikini contest appear. Vera in her diaphanous gown and martini greeted many a visitor for 60 years. We were sad to hear that she had passed to the tiki bar in the heavens just before our last visit here. But the new owners keep her spirit alive, according to Tripadvisor reviews. Just had to take a few photos of this legendary Calvert County spot with plastic palm trees.
