We have always sailed to St. Michael's MD the long way via Eastern Bay and the Miles River. This time we arrived through "the back door" up Broad Creek to San Domingo Creek. This route off the Choptank River not only saved us a few travel hours, but made me look like a mouth-breather as I gaped at the impressive homes. Most are barely visible from their streets, but I felt like a Peeping Tom as we motored up San Domingo Creek. Didn't spot Dick Cheney and his house below appeared quiet.
