I have written many tales about Chesapeake City and the houses, shops and restaurants than make this small town in Maryland such a neat place to visit. Chesapeake City was formerly incorporated in 1850, but began years before that when a canal was begun to connect the Christiana River in Delaware with the Elk River in Maryland. Carol and I discovered the town in the 1970's when we began to go on yearly vacations along the Elk River with friends Sandy and Gary and our children. The store that I am standing in, next to the huge furry mass on the floor, is one of the oldest in the town.
