The marsh separates my anchorage on Hail Creek from the Chester River. Beautiful evening.

Hail Creek and Hail Point got their names from the 18th/19th century horseback riders that would "hail" an inward bound sailing ship from Hail Point, get their name, cargo and destination (almost always Chestertown) and then set off on horseback to let the town know that a ship was on the way.

The rider could get there much faster than a sailing ship.
