I launched from Shymansky's (good spot, nice people, supposedly great seafood, but I didn't partake) near Cobb Island and paddled past some of the small islets in this area. Arrived at historic Saint Clements Island, which is a beautiful park commemorating the landing of the first settlers in Maryland. The cupola of the lighthouse keeper's building was open and I got some nice photos. This is a great area to go for a paddle and there are areas on the broad Potomac where you can't see land.
