Left beach at Deleware Seashore thanks to Bill and Karen. Also thanks to them for letting me set up on their site and feeding me.
Found out that Ocean City, MD has one of the dumbest rules that i have heard of, according to the female lifeguard, you can’t paddle any closer than 100 yards of shore while the lifeguards are on duty. This is for safety, but you can go out and paddle in the boat lane where they don’t respect you nor care about your safety.
I made it into the inlet where i met the rednexk yatch club. actual families on a pobtoon boat. We had a lot of great laughs especially about turtle heads. The hilarity was trying to get a picture of this turtle’s head. As soon as you were ready to hit the button it would submerge.
After exploring options for camp site I found one at Assoteague State park. The race was on. Ocean City inlet to Rt661 bridge to ranger station by 10 pm. Made bridge and street by 9:41pm. The woman running registrations saw me walking and took pity on me and turned around to open the office for me.
Camp set up by 1:21 am and sleep.
