If you have experience boating in this area I'd appreciate hearing about it and suggestions for the area.
Most of my saltwater boating has been in the Morehead City (North Carolina) area, and primarily in the sounds and backwaters behind the barrier islands there. Particularly with the kids, we like to get out on tidal flats and look for wildlife and shells, watch birds, and sometimes fish also.
I moved to Roanoke VA a couple of years ago, and the Virginia Beach and Eastern Shore areas are a bit closer than Morehead. In particular, the Eastern Shore looks appealing, with numerous channels and uninhabited areas leading out to some sandy beaches.
I've not found much information so far about boating in the inshore Eastern Shore waters - basically between the developed land and the ocean - areas like Magothy Bay, Smith Island Bay, and similar.
If you've boated in this area I'd appreciate comments about it or direction to a good source of information or places to go. We are normally now in our 1984 Outrage 25 but I'm comfortable pretty shallow from usage around Morehead City.

Check out Kiptopeake state park just over the CBBT on eastern shore. Pricey toll but VA has an excellent park system. Park has ramp and camping. Puts you right in the thick of Chesapeake fall striped bass migration this time of year.
