The Cape Blogger, who writes regularly for the Broadneck Patch, took this photo on Monday of a boat docked at Deep Creek, just waiting for the day it can plunge into the water again. "Dreaming of opening day," she wrote. The blogger's website, which features photos of the day taken from across the Broadneck peninsula, can be found here.

A local blogger took this photo of ice on Deep Creek at sunset.
The Cape Blogger, who writes regularly for the Broadneck Patch, captured this photo of Deep Creek on Thursday, just after cold weather froze a part of it over. "Brrr, it was a cold one today! As evidence, I offer up a picture of Deep Creek with a light crust of ice on the surface as the sun is setting. Even that brilliant sun's rays couldn't melt off the chill. Although, for January, not too bad. I've seen the creek look a lot more solid in years past," she wrote.

Local marinas are busy with boaters and marina workers taking the precautions necessary for Irene.
As Irene churns and bubbles to the south of us, her promise of destruction has become imminent. Though the forecasts remain uncertain as to the exact path, it is clear that we remain within a few longitudinal degrees of an atmospheric skirmish that will at least sweep away our lawn furniture and snap our tomato plants. At worst…well lets not go there. Fearing destruction and remembering what was left behind by Isabel, local mariners are scurrying to button up their boats and secure their waterfronts for the storm. The degree of preparation seems to vary up and down the shoreline. At Scott Marine Services in St Margaret’s, the staff spent Friday busily plucking sailboats from their slips and placing them on jack stands far above the water …

More than 60 paddlers participate in race as widely growing water sport catches on locally.
The waters surrounding Deep Creek Restaurant were filled with paddlers standing on their boards Sunday for the third race held by Stand Up Paddle (SUP) Annapolis. The stand up paddle race more than doubled its 30 participants from last year—a sign that local interest in the water sport is growing. Stand up paddle boarding is not new, with origins in coastal and beach communities, especially on the west coast and Hawaii. The wave has made it locally to creeks and rivers along the Chesapeake Bay as more recreational and competitive paddlers spread the word. With Deep Creek as the backdrop for this event, stand up paddlers competed in either a recreational 2.5-mile course out of Deep Creek into the Magothy to Lake Placid and back, or a 5-mile…
