Entering the Chesapeake

I passed right by this structure, on my way north to Reedville and I just wanted to take a picture of it. This is what remains of the Old Plantation Flats lighthouse built in 1886 located in the  Chesapeake Bay.

It was decommissioned in 1962 and is supposed to be rebuilt near the original location on the eastern side of the Bay near Cape Charles at the mouth of the Chesapeake. The eastern side of the Chesapeake is quite picturesque and less built up compared to the western shore.

It was another great day for sailing down the Atlantic with a good steady breeze and to cap it off a glorious sunset.

My voyage from Ocean city, NJ took less than 2 days.
