Last year we spent a night at one of our favorite anchorages, Dun Cove, on the Maryland Eastern Shore.  We had actually moored in one of the creeks off of the cove since the weather report was predicting some overnight storms (which didn’t actually materialize until the next morning).  I drew a picture in my sailing journal and painted this using that sketch as my reference:

Before I put this in a floating frame (glass on both sides of the paper) I decided to paint on the other side, too.  Here is what the creek looked like a couple of hours later:
