But leave we must, so up through the north bay, the East River, and through the C & D canal, aptly named as it connects the Chesapeake Bay to Delaware Bay. The C & D reminded me of the Sacramento River above Rio Vista as it was lined with rip rap and plenty deep. It was built for, and is still used to get freight from Philadelphia to Baltimore.
Delaware City is just north of where the C & D enters Delaware Bay. The marina is on a 75' wide channel. It is owned by Tim, the same guy who met us at Carter's Cove Marina a couple of weeks ago. He was here to greet us, as were several other loopers.
